Bug Description

I don't know--didn't see any error number.

I've been trying to install any current version on a new MacMini OSX 10.8 machine. Only success has been U 12.04 under Parallels. 14.04 under Paralells completes, but the task bar never appears.. Same for both 64 bit versions.

Now in this case, I'm trying to install under VirtualBox. Both 64-bit versions crash, near completion.

It looks like there was a segmentation fault during the installation:

Segmentation faults are typical when you have bad ram. Please run the memtest option from the boot menu for at least 15 minutes to test for this.
