have you tried any of the other boot kernels on your laptop during boot? (You can press F1 when prompted to see a listing of them)  Sounds like you may need to use a different boot kernel.

Another possibility is disabling ACPI in your bios.  Should be easy enough to test anyway.

HTH!

Hi There,

I had a very similar issue installing 5.8 Standard. I fixed it by properly partitioning the hard drive with cfdisk.

If the root partition does not have enough space to install the OS then it will hang the install.

I endured 10+ hung install before I figured this out.

Request to the maintainers...please work on a more user friendly installer.

knight2046, you have now hijacked 3 posts with pretty much the same reply. Please consider starting a new post if you want to get help rather than hijacking old posts.
