Hopefully I'm not just being paranoid here. I currently have an HP Pavilion Entertainment laptop that came with Windows Vista Home Premium. I was fairly satisfied with the functionality of the Vista media center, but it's quite sluggish and has been crashing lately. I'm assuming this is just because of low specs (1GB of ram) for handling vista with intense video and media so I thought Linux MCE might be a good alternative.
I've downloaded the DVD Quick Install .ISO and burned the image to a DVD. On rebooting my system it detected the DVD and I hit install to begin the process. I selected my hard disk and things seemed to be going fine but the installation seems to be hanging. I'm at a point where it says "Superblock backups stored on blocks: " that continues to list several numeric values and ends with a blinking cursor. It's been at this point for several hours and doesn't seem to be doing anything. So my question is, am I being paranoid and I should just let it set and do it's thing, or should I look into installing with the 2 CD .ISO? Also, would I have to do anything to fix this if it has in fact crashed on me? Thank you for any info.
