View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installation Freeze

December 3rd, 2010, 07:42 PM
Hi All,

I'm having this problem installing Ubuntu 10.10 on my netbook.
When I boot it from a USB drive, I get to the part were it says "Preparation...", when I select forward to continue here, the system freezes up.

This happened with the regular Ubuntu and the Ubuntu Netbook Remix. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks in advance,

sudo fdisk -lu
