This is happening to me in both Ubuntu and Xubuntu 12.04 alpha install CDs.

I have several partitions but I choose only two: one as the root (/) dir which I choose for formatting, and one as /home without formatting. Both are marked as ext4.

The installer formats the root partition and then it says "Removing conflicting operating system files..." and it never leaves that state.

Before running the installer, I install the "Broadcom STA wireless" drivers and enable my wifi connection.
