I have tried almost everything and Ubuntu will not install on my laptop. I am using the bootable usb method thus far and when I insert the flash drive in and change the boot order to flash drive the laptop powers up and asks what language you want ubuntu to install and I select however from there the entire thing just locks up. I dont know what to do, The laptop I am attempting to install it on has no OS on it and that hard drive is brand new. I've tested the HD and it passes. What would cause the installation to lock up?
you can try with Alternative install cd
it is a ubuntu non graphical install cd. it gives you more advance options
same problem happened to me as well i tried this.
