    Re: Raring Ringtail - Install hangs before disk selection Window

    I have the same problem. My system board is a ASUS M4A89GTD-PRO/USB3 , CPU is Phenom II 1100T x6 , 16GB Memory, drive SDA is 120GD SSD for Windows 7, drive SDB is 240GB SSD for Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS, drive SDC is 115GB SSD for Ubuntu 13.04, video is ATI Radeon HD 4290. Ubuntu 12.10 installs fine on drive SDC - but Ubuntu 13.04 install always hangs before disk selection Window.

    This is with the amd64 Ubuntu 13.04.

    There is already a bug report in launchpad for this problem it is Bug # 1080701. I added myself as being affected by it.

    Thank You,
    Bob W.

    I get as far as the second purple screen (with the white dots) and it drops to a Busybox command line with the error message: Unable to find a medium containing a live file system. I found this old bug which I added to

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/817145

    I have had this bug on the daily ISO images on 26th, 27th, 29th and now 1st December. I only reported it today because I spent a lot of time trying to get useful information to add to the report.

    Same issue, (only 120GB SSD and 1TB HDD) installing to sdb3 on the SSD but would only proceed if HDD was disconnected.

    Had this hang before partition selection menu about a week ago. Got around it by doing sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get dist-upgrade on the live session, then install worked O.K.

    Fine on a 2 GB pc, the upgrade crapped out on the 1 GB pc running out of space. Install worked O.K. anyway.

    Of course, even though you've done an update, after install you get to update the install all over again.....

    This happened to me today when trying to install 13.04 in my ssd and the tip above solved my issue. I was using the daily build for today. Thank you.
