I am trying to install Debian on a Dell laptop. I boot from the CD to the gui install. I click on install, and it just sits there, and does nothing. I tried to re-download the iso, and it still does the same thing.
Distribution: Debian Wheezy, Jessie, Sid/Experimental, playing with LFS.
The only thing we know abot the machine is that it is a Dell laptop. We don't know how old it is nor do we know any of the specs. If it is an older machine I'd be using the text installer. Other than that you are really going to have to give us more information about the machine and other suggestions already posted above by my learned colleagues.
