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

I am trying to install ubuntu server 12.04 LTS on my server but the installation is really really slow. First I thought it was because it has to mirror everything but I assume it shouldn't take so long.

I am currently on the stage of 'wiping swap space for security' and has been stuck on 13% ever since (~30min).

I configured the raid 1 with two hard drives (WD10EZRX) using the following guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/advanced-installation.html

I'm absolutely clueless on what this could be or how to resolve this.

Thanks in advance
