ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-i386.iso fixed this problem.
I also tried the other situation.

  program error in debconf.py after UserInfo step

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  this bug probably is related to another one I'll report. these two don't allow me to install.
  I started the ubuntu-session from the cdimage. (I booted with the files of that image located on sdb1)
  there I started "Install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS" after adding the "-d" parameter.
  while the data was still copying I submitted UserInfo.
  then that UserInfo was replaced by a white page and the program did end.
  the data wasn't copied to the end, there was a lot left and the hdd just stopped working.
  I can see a waiting-cursor on screen.

  if I do the same in the actual installer, boot directly into ubiquity, it doesn't work either.
  however, then lightdm will quit and I see a black screen.
  I can use the consoles though.
