Hi! The OS looks great. I'm trying to install Watt 5 on two laptops: an Acer Aspire One model 722, and a Dell Inspiron 1150. Each installation comes to a standstill, I think on the second progressbar passage. I clicked on the details window but it only indicates something about ubiquity not being able to determine the laptop release. But it shows that for a long time, after which the progress bar goes a long way prior to stopping. Any ideas about getting it going again? Thanks for any advice.
This is basically solved now. I don't know what the problem was. I just installed WattOS on the Dell Inspiron 1150. I have decided to put Arch on the AO722, because I got it on there successfully, and that can be a hobby computer for learning Linux. The old Dell can have a renewed life with WattOS. I might soon order another netbook, though, and perhaps I might put WattOS on that one. Anyway problem solved! Perhaps the remote repositories were sluggish yesterday or something. I installed to the Dell with four partitions, one of which was /home, and no encryption.

I'm pretty sure I always check install updates.
In my experience checking "Install Updates" slows down your installation by a few hours. In Ubuntu-based Distros I seem to have a very, very slow installation process with "Install updates" checked. But when I leave it unchecked, the installation seemed to be faster.
