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):

hi guys, having issues installing via wubi for some reason. should add i had previously installed 12.04 lts via wubi with no problems, only to have it borked from some update or something... uninstalled via wubi thru windows 8, trying to reinstall.
I am brand-spanking-new at using any form of linux and, after accidently deleting my windows partition from inside wubi, reformatting my little Aspire One's hard-drive, and re-installing windows and wubi, I am nearly ready to migrate my wubi into its own partition.
I am trying to silently install ubuntu using wubi. When I start wubi.exe on windows, a dialog box comes which asks for user information like username, password,etc. I want to skip this dialog box i.e. I want to by pass this step.
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.
