I am trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 alongside Windows 7. When I try to install this, the installer hangs at the screen where it asks "Where are you?". This screen has a forward button. Neither I can click on the forward button, nor can I type in the text box. But I can click and type in other places like the system settings Window. I can also move the windows, etc. The progress bar shows "copying files" and remains like that forever.

How can I get past this installation?

maybe another installation file? – user22977 Aug 9 '11 at 13:15

Got the solution here in this bug report. Quoting the relevant part here:


A new discovery! Today I tried again but this time DISCONECTING THE NETWORK, and voila!. It let me choose the right TimeZone and carry on with the installing process. In any case is still a problem because the installer is not suppoused to wait forever in that place.
