OS installation

Asked by WoodyWoodpecker on 2008-09-25

I'm new to Linux. My sons computer crashed so I wiped it clean with D-Ban, so it's a clean install. I downloaded Ubuntu Desktop version on my computer and burned the image successfully to a CD. I started to install the OS and everything checked out. The disc was good. It recognized both hardrives and asked which one to install it to. It also asked if I wanted to partion it. I selected no partion. (160gig drive) It started the installation and progressed to 15% with the message- "looking for file systems" and it has frozen there for about an hour now. I clicked on the minimize button on the status window. The window dissappeared and I can't get it back. So now I don't know where I stand in the installation process. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Frank

If you are still in the live CD system, you can check out the installation log from /var/log directory. Otherwise, you can just start again for the installation process.

Can you help with this problem?
