View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 9.04 - Install will not finish

October 4th, 2009, 02:26 PM
I wiped my XP laptop, deleted all partitions.
I verifed my cd using the utility from the Ubuntu menu.
I start the install, go thru the 7 steps, it starts to do its thing, then it ejects the cd and tells me to close the tray and press any key. Then a number flashes in the upper left corner of the screen, and the laptop powers down.....

What am I doing wrong?

My laptop just doesn't like 9.04, so I installed 8.04LTS and all is good. Let us know if that alternate install worked for you...it didn't help me. That is why I went to 8.04LTS.
