I want to install Ubuntu with window 7 as a dual boot PC. I am new to Ubuntu.
After Booting from pendrive when I choose "intall ubuntu on Hard disk" , then installation window comes, I choose "do not connect to wifi right now". Then choose "installation type alongside window 7". After clicking "continue" a black scrren comes for 2 seconds and then my pc again restart and window 7 starts every time. (after step 4 as mention on http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/install-desktop-latest)
I am using my pen drive to boot (I made it Ubuntu bootable from http://www.pendrivelinux.com ) and i tried this installation using wifi connected and disconnected as well as.But i prefer to disconnected during installation.and these are not the actual problem.
(After booting from pen drive selecting after install ubuntu on Hard disk it goes to select language option and then prepare to install Ubuntu and after the step "install alongside window7" pc again boot to window 7 (That is the Problem).
But first and second time after boot instead of installation window it directs into a black screen command modes where lots of commands are shown and it shows write help command.Then i am unable to do anything and have to turn off my laptop with power key.)
The last two lines were...
