You have been subscribed to a public bug:

If you create a separate boot partition which is too small, the
installer crash later in the process (somewhere after the user details).

Steps to reproduce:

1. Start the live CD, choose install
2. In the partitionning, create these partitions
- boot partition (sda1) of 20 Mb (ext2)
- root partition (sda5) of 10 Gb (ext4 or btrfs)
- swap partition (sda6) of 1Gb
3. commit changes
4. Fill in the other screens (included user infos)
5. The installer crash

For my part, I've done that in a VM

Step to avoid the problem:
Same steps, with a boot partition of 200Mb will solve the problem.

I personnaly tried with ubuntu 12.04 destop 32 and 64 bits, and server
64 bits. They all gave me the same results

Proposed solution:
Why not having a warning about the size of the boot partition?

Thank you for your support
