Hello everyone i am new to ubuntu and i am trying to install it to my laptop (hp-compaq). I followed every step in installation window and although i had the same problem as this user http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1643393 i finally made it. But after that and having continued installation normally install-window will disappear and then the system hangs. i pressed ctrl+alt f1 and the following message come up: (process:380) Glib-WARNING ** getpwuid_r():failed due to unknown user id (0).Could you plz help me thx you.

try the alternate install image and do an md5 check, then disk check on it.
