    Can't install ubuntu in HP Pavilion G-Series Laptop

    I had been using Ubuntu for last few years on my Lenovo laptop without any problem but when I tried to install Ubuntu in my HP pavilion G-Series Laptop I got into problem .

    Ubuntu gets stuck at the install screen so I dont know what the problem is ? I really love ubuntu and dont want to leave it but somehow I am not able to install it in my HP Laptop.

    Welcome to the forums.

    Is this a newer system with UEFI or is it UEFI but still in BIOS mode?

    Post this from terminal in liveCD or USB flash drive:

    sudo fdisk -lu /dev/sda
    sudo parted /dev/sda unit s print

    Both Winddows & Ubuntu have to be in same mode either UEFI or BIOS. Only 64 bit Ubuntu supports UEFI.

    If BIOS mode you probably have the 4 partition limit.

    Good advice on how to handle all four primary partitions used. - srs5694
    Be sure to create recovery DVD(s) first. And a Windows repair CD.
