Unhappy computer hangs during installation


Hello All,

I installed Ubuntu in my PC alongside winXP. i downloaded the ISO and mounted it using a virtual image software (PowerISO used in winXP). i installed Ubuntu using wubi in a 20GB partition. during installation it asked me how much space should i give, i gave it 11gb. everything went fine. i rebooted but now the computer hangs during startup. i went to verbose mode to see what the error is and found out that everything is ok. the last line that apears is "Setting sensors limit [OK]" and then nothing happens. i have tried every option (safe graphic mode/ demo mode etc etc) but the computer hangs. please suggest what shall i do

I have not dealt with wubi installers but I hear they work great. I do not think there should be any issues with the installation.
What I am thinking about is the hardware and its compatibility. What I would suggest here is remove all the prepherials (modems, printers etc) and then try to boot up.
If you have burned the ubuntu cd/dvd - does it work properly when you boot from the cd drive?
Post back if you find some hardware is messing up the boot.
