I am trying to install 12.04 from a LiveCD on an older desktop PC. My first attempt to install Precise did not succeed: it took about 2 hours to get to the point where it tried to download language packs, got stuck there, I skipped, and then it got stuck at downloading updates for another hour.
I have first installed 10.XX version but later uninstalled and deleted the ISO image. then i tried to install 12.04 version but after installation from WUBI on first boot-up installation , it hangs on "Almost Finished Copying Files" I have given 16GB space in my Windows C Drive. I have tried to do the same 3-4 times by uninstalling and installing again.
I am trying to install my first linux software, ubuntu 12.04.
I got an iso image of Ubuntu 12.04 from a pc magazine dvd. I first burned it using imgburn on a clean new cd-rw. Then i deleted a 40 gb partition to make it free. I booted from the cd, Ubuntu came up, selected install option followed by install along windows 7 option.
I just installed Ubuntu onto my Laptop. It was successfully installing for a while, then it stopped. It said almost finished copying files, but it was stuck on the same spot for 10 minutes. Bored, i decided to play around with the features already on the top bar. I clicked the audio button (the microphone with the sound waves coming out). I clicked play, and the computer is now frozen.
I installed Ubuntu and after completing the steps at the website and rebooting my computer shows a menu to choose between Ubuntu and windows 7.
When I choose Ubuntu it shows that it is completing installation and a dialogue box appears which shows the status of "copying files..." and then after a few seconds it shows "almost finished copying files" and it remains like that.
I followed the instructions here Boot and Install Windows from a USB thumb drive to copy the windows file from CD/DVD to USB. But after running this command: robocopy.exe F:\ G:\ /MIR , I got an error:
When you select some files and copy them, the file copying dialog appears with progress bar and speed indicators. But when you select some other files and copy them, another dialog pops up and both seemingly show more than 50% speed slowdown as compared to only a single file copying dialog.
