I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 from a DVD. (64-bit). I restarted after installation with the DVD in the drive but it went back to the installation menu and started reinstalling. I aborted it and started again. I removed the DVD before installing but now it is hung. Any help is appreciated

You may have damaged the previous installation. At what point did you abort? – Mitch May 26 '13 at 8:36

Try to install using boot-able pen drive , it is the best option. To make pen drive boot-able use the following command

sudo dd if="loaction of ubuntu file" of=/dev/sdb.

When I install ubuntu using DVD it gives me problem most of the times.
