View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installation gets stuck

January 5th, 2009, 10:45 PM
so I installed ubuntu under win xp, the one where it shows up in add/remove programs.

it did the initial install in windows, then rebooted, and I picked it from the OS list for the first time.

on the first boot a little window comes up and it tries to do some stuff.

it gets stuck at some point:

"Checking Installation
Configuring apt
Scanning the mirror..."

with the progress bar at 82%. it sat there for a good 10 mins before I hit reset on the tower.

any idea what to do?
