So I have been trying to install ubuntu onto a new hardrive I got, I managed to do it before with some minor issues. I got a pretty good knowledge of computers and know my ins and outs very well but I have tried very hard to figure this all out on my own but nothing I have tried seems to work. I am install Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS (32 bit, due to limit of motherboard) and I have checked its MD5 hash many times. I have used LiLi, Universal Usb installer, and Unetbootin. Nothing has worked. So This time I typed out everything I was doing and what happened each time and during each step so that I could get the most help possible.
System Infomation, Intel Motherboard MQ96510J.86A.1761.2009.0326.0001 Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.20 GHz (tends to run at 70 C idling dont know if normal) DDR2 5120 MB total Intergated Intel Graphics Nvida Graphics Geforce 7100s Turboforce VGA Installing to WD 1 TB hardrive brand new 250 GB and 400 GB hardrives both with Windows Vista have old files want to keep, not being installed to. Used LiLi to make USB stick.
Boot computer, everything starts out fine so go straight to install ubuntu.
Check download updates and install third party
COntine... System hangs for about 1 minute. "Creating ext4 file system for / in partition #1 of SCS1 (0,0,0) (sda)..." "Installer Crashed!" When Time window appears Goes to console "*Starting Mouting network filesystems [OK]" "*Stopping Mouting network filesystems [OK]" AT which point nothing can be done restart.
Reboot everything fine, go to Try Ubuntu.
Goes to desktop.
Click "Install Ubuntu 12.04.03 LTS" Nothing, click again. "System program problem detected" pops up "Report Problem" "Sorry, Ubuntu 12.04 has experienced an internal error" "Show Details" Executable Path /usr/sbin/aptd (message box dissappeared before anything else showed up) "Report Problem" "Invalid Problem Report... TypeError(Error('Incorrect padding',),)" ANother Internal Error Details /usr/share/ubiquity/...(missed the rest because window disappeared) Another internal error contine... Repeat. Try to open "Install Ubuntu" Again. Window to install pops up (Oh god maybe something different!) English->Contine Internal Error... (nope) Buttons disappear and nothing more can be done. Turn off... Give up...
