Bug Description

The Desktop AMD+mac image from 2013-09-13 freezes hard during installation. No mouse movement is possible nor are any consoles available. The machine appears completely unresponsive. This happens each time at the same place on the "Thank You" slide when the status bar is about 1.5cm along. Sorry I can't get more info aside from the fact that the freeze happens each time an installation is attempted.

Just to add, it does not matter if I go directly to Install or go via Try Lubuntu First

If the Live CD is not run first and one goes to the installer directly, it freezes at the "Installation Complete" dialog after the button "Restart Now" is pressed.

This bug is probably also present in the Lubuntu desktop isos for standard amd64 and i386.

I tested the newest daily build (Sep 17 2013) of the 32-bit
Lubuntu saucy-desktop-i386.iso

in the same machine and with the same conditions.

RAM = 384, 512 MB, 768 MB

Finished gracefully, but froze after I clicked reboot. Working system

RAM = 1024 MB

No freeze, but waiting for Enter without any text prompting for it, bug

This is only slightly better than the 64-bit version, and it is much
worse that during early Saucy alpha (or pre-alpha) stages, when the
32-bit desktop installer for Lubuntu would work with 384 MB RAM, and
definitely worked with 512 MB RAM.

So I think *something bad is happening* when Lubuntu is to be switched
off. I have also noted that shutdown and or logout is much slower than it
used to be (also compared to earlier versions of Saucy).
