During installing Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS on an Acer laptop I got the following error:
ubi-partman failed with exit code 10
the error message had three buttons and the “continue” button was letting me proceed the installation progress to select date and other stuff, but before selecting the partition I was stock ! After few hours searching and reading blogs I found a clue but there was no specific solution for it, so I decided to write this article.

Then you should press
