View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 11.10 freezes on install

October 21st, 2011, 11:28 AM

I'm trying to duel boot my system with Ubuntu 10.04 and 11.10, but when I choose to split the hard drive in half, it freezes midway (about 50% in). I've duel booted other computers before with Ubuntu 10.10 and Linux Mint 11 and the partition splitting didn't take long at all.

I've tried twice so far, and it's taking hours...

If anyone knows any information, please let me know!

are you using alternative version?
could you show your dmesg?

alt + F2

i also met the issue, and found some error, but not sure whether the same
