After a hard reset have you tried to exit gparted and use the partitions made on the previous attempt?
I can't exit Gparted without falling in this dead lock saying "Please wait...Remounting partitions".
If I choose "No" in the opening window the installe rdoes not continue?
It is also possible to comment out the lines in the installer that start gparted.
Yes, this would be an option if you could tell me how to find the vlliveinstaller sript and what to do?
I think it's not an easy task because installer is running from CD-read only.
Would you recommend to download the iso again? Where is the newest version to get?
