I'm just doing a base install of Ubuntu Server. The install goes fine until it reaches the Partitions Formatting section. It just goes to 33% and stays there. I have read on some sites that its still formatting even though it stays on 33% and that it will eventually format. But I left it alone for 12 hours and its still the same. The hard drive is 250GB. I don't think that it should take that long should it? I have tried CD, DVD and Unetbootin including versions 10.04, 10.10, 11.04, but they all do the same thing.
I can install the Ubuntu desktop version quickly with no problems though.
