Does it run OK from the live-CD? It's worth trying this. You would not
be asked for user name/password until it was ready to install on the
host machine, and then it would only stop with some sort of message that
would tell you what is wrong - not just 'error' - are you saying it
hangs after you have given it a username and password to use in the new
installation? I just wonder if the existing partitioning or something
is getting in the way?
I've been running it on my desktop since Alpha 1 and I'm delighted with
it. Unity is fantastic on a desktop once you are used to it. My wife
still has 10.04 on her machine and I really find it hard going when I
have to use it. I've now installed 12.04 on my netbook and again am
delighted with it. I will be very surprised if there isn't something
simple getting in the way of your install.
I really hope we can help you to sort it. Can you get into the
commandline and tell anything from there while you are trying to install?
