    I re-downloaded the ISO as a single file from one of the mirrors instead of using the torrent. That burned fine, and installs fine.

    So forget using the .torrent, download the ISO as a whole file.

    I can confirm the identical problem using XUbuntu 12.10 burned to a USB, with the exception that it still hangs even if those options are left unchecked.
