View Full Version : [ubuntu] frozen install maybe

July 1st, 2012, 07:33 AM
ok doing a cd instal of 12.4 on my old tower and everything's been going good but got to like 80ish% and swear it hasn't moved for like 3-4 hours. I know that OS installs can take awhile but this seems a bit much so thought i'd check.

Hey XeroFlare,

Welcome to UbuntuForums!. OK, if you are doing a true CD install, and not masking it with a USB install, like I do, then you will need to check for a few things.

First of all, is your CD clean? What speed did you burn it at? Sometimes burning at a lower speed can help.

Did you check updates to be installed while downloading? Depending on the speed of your connection, this could cause it to hang. Perhaps if you removed that option, and just tried installing what was on the CD, it would work better.

But this sounds like either a corrupt ISO, unsupported hardware, or a dodgy CD.
