I booted my laptop with a USB with Ubuntu 14.04, and verified that 14.04 is working fine, and my internal drive is intact and working. Then I hit install.
The install program worked the first couple steps, but is now hanging forever on "Detecting file systems..."
And the screen is printing over and over again the following:
Sep 3 11:38:08 ubuntu kernel: [10317.912522] ERROR @wl_cfg80211_get_station : Wrong Mac address
This has been going on over an hour.
A bit of history: previously I tried to upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04, but in the middle of this upgrade I lost power. Then tried to resume the upgrade using various methods unsuccessfully, finally deciding just to back up everything and do a clean install. This clean install is now hanging as above.
Any ideas what to do next? Thanks, Stew
