I have an Acer Aspire One. Not sure what version. I've had it for a year or two on Windows and then suddenly, I couldn't boot Windows anymore. So I decided to use Ubuntu. I first tried Ubuntu 13.04. It said my hard disk was faulty. So, I decided to try a lower version: 12.04. Whenever I get to the part where it starts creating ext4 file system, it gets stuck. I know that it is stuck because I have waited for 1-2 hours, and it didn't move a bit.
I don't know what I am doing wrong. Maybe my hard drive is ruined or something. I don't know. Any Ubuntu installer I try never works to go through the whole installation. I have been using a liveCD for my installation.
I have tried the Disk Utility. It says that a few sectors are bad. Only two when I checked. Those sectors didn't seem very important. For the memory test, There was only one failing address. It also said my Err-Bits were 80000 and the Count Chan 1.
