Can't install ubuntu in HP Pavilion G-Series Laptop
I had been using Ubuntu for last few years on my Lenovo laptop without any problem but when I tried to install Ubuntu in my HP pavilion G-Series Laptop I got into problem .
Ubuntu gets stuck at the install screen so I dont know what the problem is ? I really love ubuntu and dont want to leave it but somehow I am not able to install it in my HP Laptop.

Welcome to the forums.
Is this a newer system with UEFI or is it UEFI but still in BIOS mode?
Post this from terminal in liveCD or USB flash drive:
sudo fdisk -lu /dev/sda
sudo parted /dev/sda unit s print
Both Winddows & Ubuntu have to be in same mode either UEFI or BIOS. Only 64 bit Ubuntu supports UEFI.
If BIOS mode you probably have the 4 partition limit.
Good advice on how to handle all four primary partitions used. - srs5694
Be sure to create recovery DVD(s) first. And a Windows repair CD.
