Problem intstalling ubuntu 12.04

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I am trying to install ubuntu 12.04 on an older laptop. All the system requirements for ubuntu 12.04 are met with the laptop. I downloaded the os and created a bootable cd, when i turn the laptop on it boots the cd fine, when i click on install it starts to install then a minute or two after that the dots below the word ubuntu are all orange and nothing is happening. It just hangs there. Anyone got an answer for me? All help will be appreciated. (HowTos)
