    Please tell us
    - what version of Ubuntu you are installing
    - where you download it from
    - what medium (CD/DVD/USB drive, Flash drive, etc) you are booting from to do the install
    - if Ubuntu running off the live medium runs successfully
    - what device you are installing Ubuntu on
    - the hardware specification of that device (RAM size, Storage size, CPU speed, etc)

    well my suggestion is to try again, only burn a DVD of the ISO and boot from that, then install from there, it has never failed me before, and I have done this a dozen times with dozen different distros...
