Wubi freezes when it's almost done copying files. The cursor still has the spinning animation, but everything becomes unresponsive to mouse clicks. Any idea how to fix this?

I was having the same problem. I wasn't connect to the internet but when I did the problem went away. – user35898 Nov 29 '11 at 14:08

On menu of boot up press F6. Check one or all of them. See what works for you. I was able to install after this.

I don't know if you no longer have this problem, but I had it too and fixed it by using those command lines:


I also downloaded the 64bit Version (was using the 32 before), and removed my Wireless Network Adapter (though this propably did nothing).

Check MD5 and SHA1, i think you are using windows. You can use HashTab on Win & Mac. Here is download page.

Well the md5sum is correct, so I doubt that the iso has any problems. – user27561 Oct 15 '11 at 15:03
Please describe more info - computer brand/model, specs. Where is it freezing exactly? Generally it's better to give more descriptive information so we can understand where it's failing. – bcbc Oct 15 '11 at 20:57
