The first time I tried to install it as a secondary and it gave some excuse for failing. I copied all the important files to an SD card because I have an adapter for the laptop, but w* wouldn't work with USB drives. Now I find that the media is one of the nefarious type: It holds maybe 2G, but aliases itself as 16G and perforates the files after it's full. I now have a few folders that contain nothing but can't be deleted because they're "not empty". I suppose this links into the "Corupted flash drive" post from earlier.
What brand and model computer are you trying to install to? Are you burning the ISO to CD or DVD media? Does the computer you want Ubuntu (Any flavor of Linux) on have a DVD drive? By graphical installer you mean the Alternate Install disc or the LiveCD, I'm guessing the Alternate Install CD. Do you receive generic errors at seemingly random spots with each install attempt? Try burning the CD ISO to a DVD (it works, trust me) and then re-attempt an install. For some reason (seems like the read rate and pure data throughput of a DVD) a DVD disc has a higher success rate over CDs. I could go into more details of why this sometimes works but it's not really important, trying it is though. Good luck.
