    Installation is stuck at step 6 of 7

    Hello,

    I am using wubi beta which in turn is installing the 8.04 beta. I got to the point where I needed to restart to apply changes and it loaded up properly and i could choose from windows and Unbuntu. When i get back into unbuntu I get step 6 of 7 in the installation which is 'Migrate Documents and Settings' It gives me the option to select my windows account but the option to go forward is greyed out and can't be clicked. Even after waiting for about 45 minutes the option remains grey. I don't want to hit cancel(again), I know for a fact that if I do ubuntuu will work perfectly fine, i just wont beable to save my changes while using ubuntuu and will have to do this again every time i start up ubuntuu... any insight would be great. Thank you

    #d-i netcfg/choose_interface select eth1

    # too, which is less safe as it might not be able to boot that other OS.

    #d-i grub-installer/with_other_os boolean true

    # Alternatively, if you want to install to a location other than the mbr,

    # uncomment and edit these lines:

    #tasksel tasksel/first multiselect ubuntu-standard, lamp-server

    #tasksel tasksel/first multiselect ubuntu-standard, kubuntu-desktop

    #d-i pkgsel/include string openssh-server build-essential

    # Some versions of the installer can report back on what software you have

    # installed, and what software you use. The default is not to report back,

    # but sending reports helps the project determine what software is most

    # popular and include it on CDs.

    #popularity-contest popularity-contest/participate boolean false



    ## FINISH FIRST STAGE

    # Avoid that last message about the install being complete.

    d-i finish-install/reboot_in_progress note

    # This will prevent the installer from ejecting the CD during the reboot,

    # which is useful in some situations.

    d-i cdrom-detect/eject boolean false



    ## X CONFIGURATION

    # X can detect the right driver for some cards, but if you're preseeding,

    # you override whatever it chooses. Still, vesa will work most places.

    #xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/config/device/driver select vesa

    # A caveat with mouse autodetection is that if it fails, X will retry it

    # over and over. So if it's preseeded to be done, there is a possibility of

    # an infinite loop if the mouse is not autodetected.

    #xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/autodetect_mouse boolean true

    # Monitor autodetection is recommended.

    xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/autodetect_monitor boolean true

    # Uncomment if you have an LCD display.

    #xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/config/monitor/lcd boolean true

    # X has three configuration paths for the monitor. Here's how to preseed

    # the "medium" path, which is always available. The "simple" path may not

    # be available, and the "advanced" path asks too many questions.

    ##

    #xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/config/monitor/selection-method \

    # select medium

    ##

    #xserver-xorg xserver-xorg/config/monitor/mode-list \

    # select 1024x768 @ 60 Hz



    ## PRESEEDING OTHER PACKAGES

    # Depending on what software you choose to install, or if things go wrong

    # during the installation process, it's possible that other questions may

    # be asked. You can preseed those too, of course. To get a list of every

    # possible question that could be asked during an install, do an

    # installation, and then run these commands:

    # debconf-get-selections --installer > file

    # debconf-get-selections >> file

    ## SHELL COMMANDS.

    # d-i preseeding is inherently not secure. Nothing in the installer checks

    # for attempts at buffer overflows or other exploits of the values of a

    # preseed file like this one. Only use preseed files from trusted

    # locations! To drive that home, and because it's generally useful, here's

    # a way to run any shell command you'd like inside the installer,

    # automatically.



    # This first command is run as early as possible, just after

    # preseeding is read.

    d-i preseed/early_command string [ -x /custom-installation/hooks/early-command.sh ] && /custom-installation/hooks/early-command.sh



    # This command is run just before the install finishes, but when there is

    # still a usable /target directory.

    #d-i preseed/late_command string echo foo > /target/etc/bar

    # d-i preseed/late_command string rm /target/usr/lib/base-config/menu/apt-setup; rm /target/usr/lib/base-config/menu/apt-setup.mnu

    Could you please try to reinstall using today's daily ISO?
    It should work now without any intervention.
