Still happening on 12.04.1 (i386).

I downloaded the ubuntu 12.04.1 desktop i386 iso, then wubi for this version in the same directory, then started the installer.

After rebooting, I first got a blank grub console. I used configfile .../ubuntu/winboot/wubildr.cfg, which continued the install.

The installer gui got to about 75% then hanged (the spinning 'hourglass' was not spinning). I hit SysRQ + S, U, B which apparently worked (the computer rebooted).

I booted again to the grub prompt, loaded wubildr.cfg, and picked 'save graphics mode' from the menu. This time the installed went to about 75% again but the kbd & mouse were responding. I saw a stack trace in dmesg related to 'ext4 lazy init' and a message about a loop device being 'stuck for more than 120 seconds'. And I rebooted.
