OK, first thing out of the way, are you sure you're not installing
Ubuntu Server? :)

What do you mean by read/only?

Can you login as your user you created during the installation?

Can you please this execute command after you log in and send me the
first line: mount -l

Sample output as follows:hakan at minotaur:~$ mount -l
/dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw,relatime,errors=remount-ro) []
