    Ubuntu 9.04 live CD not getting partitions

    I've been trying to install Ubuntu on a friend's laptop. It's a Dell Inspiron 1420. It seems to have a hard time getting the partitions after selecting time and keyboard layout. I've left it running for 10-20 minutes but it still refuses to continue.

    Hm, is it showing any progress at all?
    Partitioning can take a long time.
    Just give it a little more time, if it still doesn't work just try the whole thing again.
    Enjoy Life!

    Well, there's really no progress bar. It tries to start the partition editor, which gives me a progress bar. Once that reaches 100% it goes away and just kind of sits there.

    Erm...well...after a bit of poking around and experimenting I found that the hard drive simply did not work. At all. Oh well. Looks like I'll be buying a new one.
