Ubuntu – The installer encountered an unrecoverable error and will now reboot


or "and will now run a desktop…."

I tried installing it with a CD..
it installs ubuntu to a certain point and then stops (after the name password window).. the last thing I see before the error pops up is a big white window with an ">" on the right side.

I tried to gather some debug info via ctrl+alt+f2 but whenever I type something in it tells me I do not have permission to do so.
