I've been trying to reinstall Ubuntu Server 12.04 on a Dell desktop, all of a sudden it doesn't work anymore.
Everytime I got to the step where you have to put in your hostname, and when you do, you just get a purple screen instead of filling in you full name.
I've taken an OTHER server, tried to install, same problem.
Reburnt the disc, same problem.
I'm using an USB cd drive.
Please help me with this problem, it's killing me
