I'm not sure what the problem is but

grep flags /proc/cpuinfo => if there is "lm" in the output your system is 64bit if not its 32bit.

also try md5 checking your images, there should be a checking option on the boot screen of the CD too.

Good Luck

boot with one of your ubuntu live disks, execute this in ubuntu. You can also read your computer manual to learn if its 32bit or not.

Just clarify this for us. Do you want to dual-boot, or are you trying to install with Wubi?
