Do NOT boot from the CD. Just boot into Windows 7, then insert in the Ubuntu disc in the CD/DVD drive. When the Ubuntu menu pops up, select "Install inside Windows". Refer to the link in response # 2 for details on how to use the WUBI installer. Here's a shot of the pop up menu:

Personally, I recommend Linux Mint over Ubuntu. It's based on Ubunutu but is easier to use. It can be installed the same way as above.

I would suspect that you could install some linux distro. I also almost wonder why though.

I'd suggest you just install a free virtual machine software and run both windows and linux at the same time. For most newbie's it is a great way to go. I use it all the time cause I am too lazy to partition and I also don't follow installer instructions very well.

To see if linux would work, a general way is to boot to a live cd /dvd or usb.

Use the run as feature in Windows 7 to allow it to install.

I never liked Wubi. I know others here and other places love it. I'd go back the the virtual machine deal and un-install ubuntu from the add and remove programs in windows.

Not sure of any part of the whole deal. Live cd ought to help id if the system should work. Did you try that? Did you test the image or download?

What program did you use to burn the ISO to a disc? And what text are you talking about?

I didn't say re-download. I said test it. md5 or shal checksums.

Then burn the disk at the very slowest speed your cd/dvd writer supports. Then try again.

Boot to safe mode. See ubuntu doc's for how to do that at boot time.
