Ubuntu server 12.04 Finishing installation loop



I was about to install Ubuntu server (ubuntu-12.04-server-amd64) from USB drive. The installation went well, until the very end - installation instructed me to remove the USB so the system could boot into new OS. I´ve removed it, confirmed and the setup went from aprox 95% to (i guess, it was very quickly) 100% but instead of then rebooting, it went back to the main install menu, "finish the installation" being selected.

Finishing the installation few more times didnt help either and since there is no reboot option in install menu, I had to do a hard reset. As expected, I was not offered to boot Linux after that last reset (only already installed Win7 and Win8).

I am afraid that if I repeat the installation this would happen again. Any ideas?

As you prob can tell from the very beginning, I am very new to Linux :(
