I am trying to create an 11.10 VirtualBox client using the same DVD I used to upgrade my host system. (It happens to be the alternate DVD ISO.)
However, it keeps hanging when the progress bar reaches about 70%. The last command above the progress bar is
log-output -t ubiquity laptop-detect but this appeared much earlier in the process (the progress bar keeps going and only hangs later).
By searching for symptoms I eventually found out what my specific problem was (see below), but I still don't know how to find an error message while I'm busy installing on a fresh VirtualBox.
Are there logs I can access, a command-line mode I can switch to, or some other means of finding a report of what is going wrong, assuming there is one?
(If it is not possible to do so, please provide some kind of authoritative reference confirming this.)
