I have downloaded 12.04 CD via torrent from Ubuntu site.
When i mount the CD on MagicDisk it does not show the Install along Windows (something like that) option. How can i do that and why isn't it available?

See this:… (also you don't have to mount it with virtual disk - you can download wubi.exe separately and run it with the iso in the same folder) – bcbc Jun 6 '12 at 20:59
Thanks the command worked perfectly with RUN and CMD both :D the command is [CD-DRIVE]:\wubi.exe --force-wubi this is for others looking for the same answer – Salik Sadruddin Jun 7 '12 at 5:08

If you mean installing in a separate partition you will have to shrink your windows partition manually as explained here, and then create a new partition and install ubuntu in it.

The other alternative is the Windows UBuntu Installer (WUBI) which will install Ubuntu from within windows. I would definitely recommend this method to someone wanting to just try out Ubuntu for the first time.
