    Re: Urgent help needed

    I should be able to, but I can't. I've just made a third attempt. This time was like the first.

    I'd successfully installed 7.10. I'd updated 7.10 and restarted. I then attempted to use update to install Hardy Heron. This time it got to 2 minutes to go on installation before stalling. When it stalls it starts up terminal, for some reason.

    I am now reinstalling 7.10 for the third time today.

    Does it give you any type of error for the install?

    No, it just stalls. Period. First and third attempts - it was towards the end of installation. Second attempt it appeared to install correctly and restarted but then went into a loop of Dell screen to Ubuntu screen and back again, that I described in my post above.

    Wow, that is really odd and I have no idea, sorry.

    If you really are up to testing your patience, you could try downloading a Hardy Live Cd and installing from that, otherwise, I don't know.
    Any piece of knowledge I acquire today has a value at this moment exactly proportioned to my skill to deal with it. Tomorrow, when I know more, I recall that piece of knowledge and use it better.

    Clean the lens in your burner. Check CD integrity before you install.

    Pumalite - just want to say that you have probably been right all along. Your suggestion of the cd was what I should have done. I'll think about doing it in the future, but for now I think I'll stick with 7.10.

    get 7.10 working.
    Download the CD for Hardy
    install virtualbox
    With virtualbox you can install and run multiple different OS's at the same time. They run in a window, It is rather interesting.
    You can then run virtualbox and create a virtual Hardy to see if it works!
