    This probably isn't your issue, but just as an aside you more than likely don't need 1.6GB worth of SWAP space. 512MB should do you just fine.

    Can you give more details...

    At which step does the text installer crashed?
    What is the error message?

    When it crashes, switch to debugging console (with ALT - F4) and post the exact detailed error message.

    Plus, did you tryed some other boot parameters for the install CD (press F1 for help at the boot prompt)?

    Well then, an easy solution would be to do the "server" install (F1 at boot prompt to know how).

    That way the initial install won't even try to install python.

    An then you can just:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install x-window-system-core gdm ubuntu-desktop
