I have the same crash but installed by Live USB.

I think I identified the condition.
Which is I choose btrf file system instead of ext4 at the installation instruction.

Please look at details at bug report in the above link.

I test reinstall Ubuntu 12.04.1 with the same DVD and choose ext4 to the same partition sda12,
with 100% positive success.
