If nothing happens until two hours(too long), I would rather try to 
install a different distribution like Fedora to see if it will replicate 
that Ubuntu installer problem, anyway, I don't know if your hard drive 
is brand new(assuming that it is not defective), so you can easily point 
out that it is not a hard drive failure. Formatting a hard drive must be 
flawless, unless there is a problem within the hardware itself that it 
cause the installer to freeze.
