Bug Description

I had two OS, Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows Vista. I wanted to replace Ubuntu 12.04 by Ubuntu 11.04.
When I tried to install Ubuntu 11.04 from Desktop CD, the installer crashed while copying the files. The error message suggested to send an error report to you with the files >>/var/log/syslog<< and >>/var/log/partman<<.

Then, this window appeared:
>>The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again.<<

I have tried to install Ubuntu 11.04 again, the same result.

Hi Nele, I have a couple of questions so I can help you better:

1. Do you want to use 11.04 to avoid Unity and if yes why? (Performance, incompatibility, not user friendly...)

2. Did you remove 12.04 (format) before installing 11.04?

3. Did you try or does your hardware support installing from a Live USB (installing the 11.04 image to a flash drive)?

4. Did you try another CD/DVD image just in case the image is damaged?

Hi Luis!

1. Yes, I want to remove Unity from the pc of my sister because she uses at school 11.04 and wants the same at home. I don't know exactly why.

2. No, I didn't. There was an option to exchange 12.04 for 11.04 and I chose it.

3. I haven't tried it yet. And I don't know, if it is possible, I only used the CD. Shall I try it out?

4. No, I didn't. But I am sure, that it is undamaged because befor me, a friend used it and it worked.
