    Question Ubuntu will not install...

    Me again...

    Once more, I tried nearly every method of getting Ubuntu to install as a dual-boot with Windows 7; Wubi, DVD distribution, and USB Boot. None of them seems to work. It always freezes on the load screen, all dots orange...

    I'm not sure where to go now. It used to work just fine a few months back, but now it won't work at all.

    Anymore info required for a useful answer, please say so.


    Cheers.

    Is it definately freezing? Installation can take a LONG time, I thought mine had frozen but it came through in the end...

    Same sort of thing happened to me. If you have broadcom wireless, it can cause problems. Try the link:

    Make sure the ISO file is not corrupt (maybe by running it virtually on another machine). If it is not then unplug everything that is not necessary to operate your computer (web cams, external devices, things like that). I had a hard time installing it took me hours to find out it was my microsoft lifecam was not compatible. and like the other post give full system specs. you are definitely not alone so I'm sure you will find a ton of help.
