Hey, I recently tried to install this distribution, I can get to the install screen no problem, formatted at drive to use for the os the bar goes along but the install has froze with 8 minutes left, I can't move the mouse cursor or anything I waited 2 hours and nothing happened, tried restarting the computer and it just starts the install from scratch My hardware is Amd phenom II 1055Asus m4a89gtd pro mobo4 gb ram Also I have a geforce 8400 pci card but I'm trying the install using the built in graphics Any help? Thanks

Maybe the installer entered in the sleep mode. Try moving the mouse every 3 minutes so you avoid the installing from sleeping
