On the live-CD session, I tried installing Lubuntu double clicking on the install button on the desktop. Here, the CD starts running but then stops running and nothing happens.

Next, I rebooted and tried installing Lubuntu directly from the boot menu screen using forcepae again. After a while, I receive the following error message:

The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again.

Hitting Enter brings me to the desktop. For what errors should I search? And how?

Thanks for some hints!
