The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again.
滿心期待燒錄完Ubuntu 10.04後，使用live CD迎接我的卻是這段文字。
Desktop installer sometimes crashes on startup
On some machines, the CD boot fails with the message “The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again." If you encounter this error, restart your computer with the CD inserted, press any key at the splash screen (when you see the keyboard icon at the bottom of the screen), and select “Try Ubuntu without installing". Once the desktop appears, use the “Install Ubuntu 10.04″ icon to begin installing Ubuntu. (567899)
I had this issue as well as USB drives and optical discs refusing to auto-mount. See Bug #546992 . Both were solved by either inserting my removable floppy drive or disabling the floppy controller in the BIOS.
