View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8.10 install freezes half way through

Ok, I am new to Linux and Ubuntu

I am trying to install Ubuntu 8.10 on a Gateway Laptop and it gets about 56% of the way through and a black screen comes up and the install seems to, for a lack of a better word, stall. The mouse arrow is present and I can control it. Live CD works fine as well. Any thoughts?
