    hp dx6120mt (mini-tower, pentium 4 dual core, 3gb, winfast clone of nvidia 7600gt)
    ((it didn't let me select drive which I hoped to do, but it's installing something..))
    this has hung up & is stuck -- possibly, I can use terminal so exploring..
    on display is "Removed libfcitx-qt5-1 I386)" as last message on GUI & it just sits there.. slideshow doesn't change anymore; complete-% bar is maybe 85% complete.
    using `top` nothing appears running.. I do see "log-output -t ubiquity umount /target/cdrom/" in journalctl which would confirm possibly it's late in install, followed by "ubuntu-mate finihsh-install[4884]L Disabling CDROM entries in sources.list" & some other stuff..
    I'll let it sit there another ~30 mins; so it'll have had an hour.
    concluded not the aforementioned bug, so filed at text terminal -

    system was rebooted using SYSRQ REISUB & then explored using 'live' media first; it appears to have installed on SDC... rebooted for test using actual installed grub; and install appears OKAY; it's actually SDA5 so on drive I wanted!

    I'll fail this as it shouldn't require me to SYSRQ-REISUB to complete..
