Alright, loving #!, I've tried both 32 and 64 bit on a very dated system (Biostar Socket 754 motherboard, Athlon 64 3700+ CPU, 2GB RAM, 80GB SATA drive, and a GeForce 256MB 8600GTS), and when using the guided partitioning, using separate partitions for everything, I get to the installation log generation, and it hangs.
While I can reboot, and boot normally, I don't feel "right" by doing this knowing the installation hung.
However, when I use the first time user option (one partition), it completes successfully. I'm thinking it may just be a HDD issue (as it IS a very old 7200 RPM mechnical drive). At first I thought it may have been due to the DDoS attacks on the repos... but others have had success installing during the time of the attacks.
Just a suggestion:
/dev/sda1 = /root = 15GB
/dev/sda2 = /home = 15GB
/dev/sda3 = /swap = 1GB
/dev/sda4 = extended partition
/dev/sda5 = /media/MyData (change MyData to anything you want) = ±49GB
use "/media/MyData" for your documents, videos music etc etc
If you ever have to reinstall your OS, /media/MyData just needs to be mounted and all you stuff is still there.
