http://askubuntu.com – When installing Ubuntu 12.04 server from a disc, my system freezes up after the installation comes to Installing GRUB boot loader, with a 50% completion bar and the command "Running "grub-install dummy"... below that. I've tried this installation in both advanced and simple mode and the installation has frozen at this same spot for at least the past 10 attempts. I am partitioning the entire disk and have only selected the SQL software to install. I have tried both installing security updates automatically and not. I am using the following machine: HP P2-1033W Processor: AMD Fusion E- (HowTos)
