I used the Windows Installer and followed it to the letter. I turn it on, tell it to boot into Ubuntu, all is fine. Then all the white text starts appearing (black screen, no cursor) and saying what it's doing. It seems to get stuck on or something similar. It says next to it, but it just stays like that for ten minutes. Do I just need to give it time or is it something else?

Running Windows 7 on an Asus Atom processor laptop, installed Ubuntu 12.10
