I seem to be unable to get the Ubuntu 12.04.2 installation to start. Below is a log file with some more information, I hope.

After trying several things, I read on this site and in forums, I'm still struggling!

I did have a CD-ROM for 11.10 so I tried installing that version too. After reboot it continued to start my original OS, but this version did have the option to install inside Windows. So I tried that, which also failed, unfortunately.

Only near the end, or at least after extracting a lot of files I have a log file.

Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Or is it some setting or program in my Windows XP installation?

I have the following components in my PC:

  • Intel Pentium 4 2.8GHz
  • 1.28 GB ram
  • ATI Radeon AH3650 graphics card
  • 37GB harddisk (with 16GB free space and I assign 11GB to 11.10)
  • USB wifi adapter "tg123" (could this be a problem while booting from USB?)

I already spent several hours on this and the most frustrating thing is I already had Ubuntu running on this pc I while back! I hope you can help me - thanks.

Your log files don't seem to indicate any issue whatsoever. I am unable to find a clear description of the issue you're having. You state that you're unable to start the installation, but the logs show it's finished all the way until the end. How and what exactly fails? What do you see? What did you expect to happen? What happened instead? –  gertvdijk Jun 17 '13 at 22:32
    
11.10 is no longer supported, and don't use wubi; do a real install by booting from the cd. –  psusi Jun 17 '13 at 22:36
    
with the installation of 11.10 I hoped, it would not cancel it operation... "06-17 12:36 INFO WindowsFrontend: Operation cancelled" it gave an error, like 'backend error' no iso-path, and pointed out the log file for further explanation! Did make me much wiser! Only thing I could do after is try again, then it told me to delete the old one! And I had to start over –  Ramon Nijenhuis Jun 18 '13 at 7:20
    
@psusi do you advice not to use a usb-stick for installation? I did try booting from the cd, but it just keeps starting my original OS! ( yes my motherboard supports booting from cd as well as from USB removable divices ) booting from the usb gives me a 'boot error' and that's all it says! –  Ramon Nijenhuis Jun 18 '13 at 7:31
    
You can use a usb stick when set up correctly. –  psusi Jun 18 '13 at 13:20
