http://askubuntu.com – After downloading Ubuntu 12.10 yesterday and using the Wubi option to install through windows 7 I hit a road block. I partitioned the C: drive to install Linux and did the primary install no wories. But, after I get the prompt to reboot, which I do, I choose Ubuntu and the Installation starts just fine. It loads to the point of "copying files" and the progress bar moves along to approx 2/3 but that's it. It freezes there for around 30mins and then the spinning mouse stops and I'm locked out all together. Nothing works. I have to hold down the off button and force a shutdown. I'm doing this on (HowTos)
