View Full Version : [ubuntu] Install.py keeps crashing, 10.04.3LTS

Hi everyone,

I decided that I was going to try running linux again on my laptop and now I'm starting to regret it. I was able to get it installed this afternoon, but after somehow breaking wifi I decided that I would just reinstall. Now when I go to install from the USB drive install.py and ubiquity close unexpectedly every time the installer starts repartitioning.

I've tried partitioning the drive myself using gparted, but I get an error "drive busy".

Does any body have any ideas?

To clarify, it's happening when the install says that it's creating the ext4 file system on the partition I've specified. I've tried deleting that partition entirely, but it didn't work. I've also tried using an ext3 file system.

Alternatively, does anyone know how I can fix Grub so that I can login to Windows?
