I am trying a fresh install of muthbuntu 9.10, my HDD is 1 TD sata and during the install it gets to 5% and has been there for like 7 hours. It says its creating ext4 filesystem on partition 1 of sda. If you need any more info let me know.

That doesn't sound right.

Creating a filesystem on a 1TB drive can take a long time, but certainly shouldn't take 7 hours.

Have you tried creating the partition and filesystem outside of the installer ? One way to do that is to boot into the liveCD environment (using the install CD and choosing "try mythbuntu..."), starting the Partitioner (gparted) and creating one ext4 partition on the hard drive.
Or google gparted liveCD, burn that and create the partition.

If that works, try installing again.
