Got this bug with Lubuntu amd64 daily 2012-09-23, written to usb hard
disk with dd. Works with the same image, the same usb disk and

Maybe linked in some way to BIOS behavior: with the hybrid ISO my BIOS
(ASUS P8H67M-LE motherboard) displayed only one relevant entry in boot
menu, "<hdd model>"; and with MBR, FAT32 and Unetbootin it displayed
two, "<hdd model>" rebooted immediately and "EFI: <hdd model>" worked (I
don't understand this; I use a traditional MBR on both disks, internal
and USB; after installation in this manner I got grub-efi-amd64, it
refused to work, just as expected, had to install grub-pc manually).

Tried Ubuntu daily and Lubuntu Beta 1 with dd, they hanged in the same

  Install hangs at time zone selector

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm installing the latest daily build (August 20, 2011) of Quantal
  with latest Ubiquity 2.11.22, and when I use Ubiquity to install
  Quantal on a regular 130GB Ext4 / partition and another larger Ext4
  /home, everything goes fine until the time zone selector screen.

  After I select the time zone and hit Continue, the Continue and Back
  buttons get greyed, the cursor starts spinning, and that's all that
  happens. Nothing happens after that. Ubiquity doesn't freeze though; I
  can still click on the time zone map and change my time zone, but
  since the Continue button is greyed, there's no way to proceed. I
  waited for 30 mins, but there's no disk activity, and nothing seems to
  be happening at all.

  Attached are my syslog and installer debug log. I ran ubiquity from a
  gnome-terminal from the live usb of the said daily build (just to
  catch any console output), and there was no console output.
