I am trying to install Ubuntu via wubi onto my HP Envy 1030-US laptop alongside Windows 7 64-bit. I am quite experienced with windows but know very little about Linux. I initially tried repeatedly to install via a bootable usb drive, but since my laptop uses Intel Smart Response, it just proved far too much of a headache.
I would like to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my computer from Windows using Wubi, but I have a problem with it. Firstly I mount a CD image in a virtual drive via Daemon tool. Next I start Wubi, fill all installation fields, and then I click next. Then Wubi starts to extract files, etc.
