installation
« on: September 06, 2010, 02:26:36 pm »
I am trying to install Pinguy OS and the installation process is frozen at 93%  Running "update-grub"...

What can I do to continue the installation?

Any more info you can give like where are you trying to install it (on a fresh hard drive, sharing with another operating system, internal hard drive or external) etc?

I'm trying to install it on it's own hard drive but I already have Windows 7 (Yuck), and Ultimate edition on a separate drive.  I had a multiboot capability before this, but on this install I can't get thru the grub installation process.

You can't encrypted the home partition before you install it or it will fail to install. This is something I am looking into and should be fixed when 10.10 comes out. You can encrypt the home partition once it's installed just not before.
