View Full Version : [wubi] Can't install Ubuntu 9.10 via Wubi...what are the possible reasons?

Hi! I attempted to install Ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop by using Wubi. I downloaded it to my desktop...run wubi, insert a password for the new account, and clicked "install". The installation files (700MB) was downloaded and checked, after which I was asked to reboot. I selected Ubuntu at the boot screen.

After that the Ubuntu icon showed up for about 30sec then suddenly disappeared...monitor went into sleep mode and my cpu silent. The installation is supposed to continue still for another 10-15 minutes and the machine should reboot again but unfortunately mine did not progress anymore. I've repeated these steps 5 times...still no joy. Is this hardware or driver problem? What's preventing my install to succeed? How do I troubleshoot this?
