Confirming this bug still exists when using the daily build 64 bit
desktop live install downloaded 2013-04-21.

i7 PC with intel Ivybridge chipset. 
1 x SDD ; 1 x HDD - both aligned to sector 2048 (1MB boundary partition alignment).

Output of sudo parted -l
Model: ATA Samsung SSD 840 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 128GB

The only way I could get install to proceed without hanging was to:
a. Boot live session - selecting 'Try Ubuntu' option.
b. Open nautilus and mount a partition (happened to be /home)
c. Start install Ubuntu.

Previous workarounds did not seem to help e.g. CLI ubiquity --debug, starting gparted then closing.
I hope it gets fixed before release as having an OS not able to install from its media is not a great selling point for new users  :-(
