My problem is that I have a live usb installer for ubuntu 14.04, it loads fine until the installer is giving me a choice of installing it along side windows7, delete windows 7 and some other options, I choose alongside windows7 and I click continue, the installer shutdown and restart and open the ubuntu installation again.

Please help.

U r probably facing this because you have an MSI motherboard with AMD graphics or AMD apu. I am having the same problem here too. –  Newbi Jun 20 at 4:04

Try formatting the usb key and recreating it. The error might be because of a undesired file. If possible try creating a live CD. Choose a blank CD. Burn the iso image. The CD cannot be edited as it has permanent storage.
