View Full Version : How long for "preparing to install"?

May 11th, 2014, 02:37 AM
So I finally got Ubuntu to work off of a USB and I'm installing it now. On the preparing to install screen, I checked "Download updates while installing" and "Install this third-party software". It's now been two hours about, and it's still loading (the cursor is spinning) and it's been on the third "loading dot" on the bottom the entire time. It js not frozen. Is it normal to be taking so long because I checked those extra boxes? How long should it take? I just want to.make sure it didn't crash or something, and if it did what I should do.

uncheck those extra boxes and manual update after install completes
