I am trying to install Ubuntu 14.04 on my laptop. A clean install with a blank hard disc. The install always stops partway through with the screen saying "Configuring bcmwl-kernel-source". I have tried both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions, both via DVD and USB stick with the same result. The laptop does not hang, the cursor moves and I can scroll back and forth through the welcome screens, but there is no hard disc or DVD activity, even after several hours.
The laptop has an AMD Turion64 processor and 2GB of memory.
Does anybody have any suggestions please?
