Bug Description

I downloaded the 12.04 Alpha daily build and created a startup usb in 11.10. As usual I ran the startup usb, went through the usual steps of preparing Ubuntu for install (in this case I choose upgrade 11.10 to 12.04 from the options). I was connected to the internet and included the media option. Ubuquity ran and seemed to complete the install process, but at the end instead of getting the 'restart' message I got an error saying the installer had failed.
