I am attempting to install Ubuntu on my machine since windows is messed up.
The screen i see is:
Preparing to install Ubuntu For best results, pleaase ensure that this computer: (green check) has at least 4.6 GB available drive space (green check) is plugged into a power source (green check) is connected to the Internet (checked) Download updates while installing Ubuntu uses third part software... (checked) Install this third-part software Fluendo MP3 plugin...
When I hit forward I get this message:
The installer has detected that the following disks have mounted partitions: /dev/sda/ Do you want the installer to try and unmount the partitions on these disks before continuing? If you leave them mounted, you will not be able to create, delete, or resize partitions on these disks, but you may be able to install to existing partitions there.
I choose yes as I do not want to mess with any windows partitions.
Then it sits and does not move. I see the "wait" icon and it twirls but does nothing else. I can choose quit but that is all I can do.
Any advice as what is going on? Is this a hard drive issue?
