So you're installing Ubuntu 10.04 and after attempting to install it once, when you reboot, it tries to install again and follows the same loop. First question is, do you take the Ubuntu CD out of your PC after the reboot after installing? Additionally, do you get any errors when attempting to install Ubuntu? (You may be better served by asking on an Ubuntu Linux forum for installation issues)

As well as the fix to what you exactly did because I'm not sure what you were going for here.
