[Compaq Presario CQ62-a11SO Notebook PC] Installer reboot when I try to install Ubuntu 14.10 from live disk

Bug Description

I can use Ubuntu from the live disk as much as I want from the live disk, but as soon as I have clicked "Next" in the window where I choose whether I want to instal Ubuntu inside Windows or whatever, the computer reboots. The same thing happens in Trusty and Saucy.

Ader, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better. Could you please provide the full computer model as noted on the sticker?

As well, could you please provide the information following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingUbiquity ?

Hi! Unfortunately, there is no sticker on the computer, but the model as stated on the laptop is Compaq Presario CQ62. Hope that is enough. I will do the other thing when I get home.

Tell me if I also need to do the deep debugging of partman.

It was on September 16th that I tried to install. After that, I have only been using Ubuntu from the live disk without attempting an installation.

Do you want me to upgrade the bios and test if that solves it, or should I leave it so we can do further testing on the system as it is?

BIOS upgraded. Upgrading did not solve the problem :(
