Boot method: From CD
Image version: feb 8th - ubuntu website
Date: feb 8th 2008
Machine: HP Pavillion dv6000 (6449)
Processor: AMD Turion 64x2 TL-56
Partitions: C: 120GB Vista, 30 GB Linux, 7 GB HP recovery
Output of lspci and lspci -n:
Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it
Initial boot worked: [OK]
Configure network HW: [OK]
Config network: [OK]
Detect CD: [OK]
Load installer modules: [OK]
Detect hard drives: [E]
Partition hard drives: [ ]
Create file systems: [ ]

I got the CD to boot correctly. After choosing Install Ubuntu (the first option), the installer shows a progress bar. After the progress bar, the screen displayes test after test ( with [OK] after each - except what looks like network detection stuff that gives me a 'directory' not found error).
After the list of tests/checks is finished, the screen turns black and sits idle. I have left it for about 25 minutes now and still nothing.
Any ideas? Hope you can help. I am using the full ISO of ubuntu i downloaded last night which i burned to a CD.
Thanks in advance for the help
