I'm running Ubuntu from a pendrive.

When install to hard drive is selected from the first screen after booting from the pendrive the process stops before the partitioning drive page appears.

I have a MSI WIND with recently restored Windows xp.

Try the alternative CD installer.

More than likely it will work where the live CD/USB does not.
