I'm pretty much a complete first time user, I've had an ubuntu live cd that I've used for maybe 5h when my PC was messing with me and I needed to check if the random reboots were hardware related or if it just was the OS, anyway, I got a few days ago another desktop PC, it's not the newest in the world so I decided to install ubuntu on it and start exploring something else than Windows
The live CD that I had would not install so I tried downloading the newest one and burn it to an CD, burned it at 4x speed and used a better kind of CD, not some ****** brandless ones, still nothing...
The installation freezes at random steps, usually at step 2, where I'm supposed to tell the installer "where I am" to set the clock etc. when clicking forward it just freezes, once I got to step 5, when it asked for user info, then it froze again, I even left it on over night but still nothing when I woke up
and also the installer is extremely slow, is that normal? I mean like 15mins to boot up the installer? and then having to wait 15-30mins between steps?
The PC I'm trying to install Ubuntu on is an old HP Pavilion with
AMD Athlon XP 3000
and also, Im trying to install Ubuntu as my main OS, I want the whole HDD formatted, is the installer capable of doing this?
