Sorry, I finally figured it out. Sorry to waste your time. For some reason it just wanted me to click escape, then it told me that the installation was complete... Hmm well rookie mistake I guess, thx anyways.

So I decided to install Ubuntu on my older computer, so the installation went fine until it reached 100 %. After that the screen went black and nothing happened, any ideas?

Memory? Graphics? You might need a different iso.

quite a few possibilities, first things first, whats the basic hardware spec for the machine, specifically video card.

also - 'goes black' - does it shut down near the end of install or does it stay on - when you restart does it get to the bootmanager (grub) , etc. please give more details , thanks.

Did this happen after restarting the PC after the installation process ended or during the installation process itself? Also, what are the specifications of your PC?
