I'm posting from work, so I'm not in front of my home PC right now--but I do have a wubi question (since I'm about to try using wubi to install Ubuntu on a computer here at work (that computer has no optical drive and I have no thumb drive to hand, thus the need for wubi), and depending on outcome I'll try it at home):
Specifically, should I devote a separate drive to Ubuntu, or should
First time poster here. I am trying to run Ubuntu on Windows 7 64-bit using Wubi. On my first couple of tries it gave me the "Extraction failed with code: 2". Then I manually downloaded the iso ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-i386.iso (choosing the 64-bit version from the dropdown) to my desktop where the wubi.exe is. I'm still having the same issue.
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.
Just installed Ubuntu 12.04 via WUBI to my lenovo ideapad laptop. I originally wanted to dual boot with my windows7, but the windows7/lenovo combination is configured to take up 4 primary partitions, and my hard drive is a bit to small for a logical partition install.
I have been very happy with wubi 10.04 running alongside Windows (on two laptops running XP and 7, respectively).
Before finally moving to wubi 12.04 I'd like to run my old 10.04 together with the new version by using triple boot (XP /wubi 10.04 / wubi 12.04) or - on the other laptop (WIn7/ wubi 10.04 / wubi 12.04).
I'm using Windows 8 (32bit) customer preview and installing WUBI Ubuntu 12,04.1.
I down loaded 32 bit installer from ubuntu dot com, The wubi installer says AMD 64 xt.
I had a previous 12,04 install and in the terminal typed in uname -a, it say's 64 bit.
I also opened detail from the system and it read 64 bit system.
