Bug Description

I downloaded Wubi from the website and installed it, I have Windows Vista Preinstalled, the installation went fine, taking up almost 2 hours including the download.. after the installation was complete (I was hoping it was) a black screen comes up..

* Stopping kernel Oops catching service kerneloops
* Shutting down ALSA. . . _ (blinking cursor)

I have been waiting for 2 hours and it just stays there, pressed all the buttons, still there, im afraid to force shut down it cos it myt corrupt the installation and forcing me to download the installer again (which is not small for 70kbps download speed). Should I force turn off my laptop, or (I hate to say this) should i wait longer. Thanks.

Did this happen at shutdown after the linux-side installation (after first reboot)?
Can you boot into the new installation?
