I'm having a strange issue while trying to install Ubuntu 12.04.4 (64bit) to my system (preferably to the SSD).

When I boot from DVD/USB i get to the Installer, after choosing my language and choosing if I want to install 3rd party software (mp3-codec) I click on Next. From now on nothing more happens, the spinning wheel appears and stays for unlimited time (waited already up to 20mins). I'm still able to move the window, open preferences and stuff but the Installer stays at this screen.

My System: i7 4771, GA-Z87-HD3, 32GB 1333Mhz RAM, Multiple HDDs, One SSD

What's also installed is a WLAN-Card and a Sound-Card

I already retried with the following settings/setup:

Optimized defaults loaded, boot from USB, only one HDD and SSD attached, soundcard removed: still hanging

Optimized defaults loaded, boot from DVD, only one HDD and SSD attached, soundcard removed: still hanging

My Settings loaded (with one RAID1 setup), boot from USB, all HDDs and SSD attached, soundcard removed: still hanging

Optimized defaults loaded, boot from DVD, only one HDD attached, soundcard removed: could get further but aborted because I want to install to SSD

I really want Ubuntu to be installed and want to replace Windows What could be the cause of this issue?
