Bug Description

I am not sure this needs to be addressed I am giving a laptop to a relative and was testing various distro's to find the one she liked I installed Lubuntu 13.04 and found it has no upgrade path and the computer won't boot from a DVD so I used 12.04 so I could upgrade and the installer crashed during the process.
