In my experience, Wubi is very temperamental. In my opinion, you would be better off installing ubuntu directly to your hard drive. You can still make it so that both XP and Ubuntu are installed on your computer (though it would be worth making a backup before trying to do this, just in case something goes wrong).


ubuntu 12.10, wubi
