Couple of questions :
1. Are you sure that  there is enough space in the partition that you are
trying to install Ubuntu
2. What exactly do you mean by stops ? Does it give any error ? Have you
tried waiting for some more time.

My best guess is that due to low RAM, the amount of time taken to copy
installation files is more. Try again and wait for more time this time.
