Exclamation Installion Frozen and wall of Text


Hello,

My friend is having trouble getting his ubuntu up and running. He has windows 7 and downloaded Wubi and tried to install Ubuntu on his computer through the C:drive . all went well untill he had to restart. when he restarted , he chooses ubuntu and it begins to install normally untill it freezes and shows him lines and lines of text..all frozen

i have a picture of what it looks like...although you cant read the text

i believe one line of text says Panic


if anyone can help that would be amazing

Thank you!

Panic is probably from corruption. Did you install the same way as the links.

Why don't you try it in virtualbox, it won't run as fast but you can atleast you can test it.
Or you can look at this 1 for wins 7
