Hi..
I've downloaded the latest Ubuntu, and want to dual boot. All ok , follow instructions & get the dual boot menu. once booted to ubuntu, Installation stops at "formatting swap space in partition #1 of /host/ubuntu.disks..." then after a while the PC shuts down. I've tried it several times and had 12Mb free prior to install. The machine is an IBM R50 Laptop.

Thanks
