Kind of a novice so sorry if I don't provide all the proper information. I've played around with various Ubuntu builds over the years with no issue but I can't seem to install the 10.04 beta. It freezes about 60-90 seconds into the install screen (purple background w/the orange dots... the dots all stop)
The computer becomes unresponsive. I've left it in this state for 20+ minutes. Tapping the power button reveals strange (to me) errors. Not sure how to access any logs or if I'm able to since it doesn't go very far into the installation process.
I wrote down most of whats displayed;

Recent changes since my last successful Ubuntu (9.10) install on this system were adding the Intel SSD and switching drives to AHCI. I had to switch to AHCI to ensure TRIM mode is enabled on the SSD in Windows 7. So I'm not sure if thats the issue or what but its the only change since. I have not attempted to install 9.10 as of yet. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
EDIT: I get the same errors with the 64 and 32 bit builds.
