Hi
I am trying to do a fresh install of 8.04 on my daughters laptop...
All goes OK until the Live CD tries to get my partition data, it just freezes, after an hour I gave up.
When I run gparted from the existing 7.10 it says "Unable to find mopunt point".
My daughters lap top need to be wiped out, I want a fresh install as it seems to be impossible to preserve the existing dual boot system system, XP Ubuntu.
What do I need to do to stop the live CD hanging, and to just force a fresh install using all the hard drive.

Did the XP part get shut down cleanly?

1) Instead of clicking Install/Start, go down to check disk for errors.

2) Did you burn it at 4x or less?
