To install Ubuntu as a separate operating system with dual boot, you should create an install disk or USB stick and boot from it. See info here (scroll down). – To Do Sep 30 '13 at 21:24

A variety of things can cause this but I would suspect first that an anti-virus program is shutting it down. Turn off all anti-virus as well as Defender and try to install but do so as Administrator. I strongly doubt that AMD graphics is causing this.
