Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have an "Acer Aspire ONE ZG8 Netbook", and i wanted to install Ubuntu on it for quite some time, but it won't install. It has wiped windows from my hard drive already, so i can't go back to the horrible "Win7 Starter Edition", that came with this Netbook.

I would really love a way to fix this, but right now i am using the "Try Ubuntu / Live CD" aspect just so I have use of the Internet. No idea if I will be able to download an older version and try again from here or what to do.

Any help would be great.

When you select 'Try Ubuntu' and boot into the live cd environment does it prompt you to install additional hardware drivers? –  Mark Rooney Mar 14 '11 at 3:22

maybe you are affected by this? –  Takkat Mar 14 '11 at 8:17
    
As takkat says, please rule these solutions out : installer gets stuck... –  belacq Mar 15 '11 at 6:29

Are you installing from a usb key? If possible, try another key. I had the same issue and tried another usb key, which worked flawlessly.

You might try waiting for the installation to end before you click Next and enter personal data.

I've tried to install 10.10 Desktop several times 'till I discovered that patience actually pays off ;]
