I am frustrated. I can't get Ubuntu Installed.

I wrote the .ISO file into a DVD and booted from it. I choose wubi.exe file. I selected Demo Install but the system reboots quickly without copying any files, then it restarted, and booted from CD.

I have 3 Choices. Installing Ubuntu along side windows ,replace windows with Ubuntu, and something else.
When I choose Installing Ubuntu along side windows, my PC restarts and does not do anything. When I choose something else, I see a page for installing Ubuntu in a partition. I choose a partition ,and change the format of this partition to Linux partition and format it to start installing Ubuntu.

when the installing complete I restart PC,the Ubuntu added to my OS list but when I choose it I see error like this: please insert win7 CD and repair the driver,

file :/ubuntu/winboot/wabilder

status ; 0x00000f

Info : the selected entry could not be load because the application missing or corrupt

where is the problem?
