Bug Description

Ubiquity was unable to create a partition. Claimed partition was in use, when it wasn't. Upgrade was launched from 12.04 CD after booting with the CD. Bug report was supposedly already submitted before launchpad was launched. I have no idea whether or not this is a bug, the installation program called it a bug and suggested a report, which I have done. I can't access any files on the hard drive. The computer hasn't been rebooted but it will be shortly.
