Can I install 12.04 inside Windows?

Previously I got Ubuntu 11.04 installed with Wubi. Work perfectly. Then I got this new update of 12.04, download the ISO, burned into CD. Tried to install within windows, it asked me to reboot into CD.

I did just that, boot into the language option. Chose English. Next, it is the option to choose update and Internet connection. I didn't want to connect to Internet at the time cause I got slow connection.

Next, it asked me to choose from 3 option. I choose option1: which is dual boot, install Ubuntu along side with Windows. Then, the installer suddenly jumped into conclusion, ejecting my DVD-ROM. Ask me to take out the CD and Press Enter to restart.

After restart, I boot into the dual boot option, choose the Ubuntu but it give me wubi error. So I uninstall Ubuntu with Program and Features from Control Panel. Manually remove the Ubuntu boot option with EasyBCD.

I restart the installation with same step. Now it boot me directly into Windows without Ubuntu.

PC specs:

  • Windows 7 ultimate 64bit
  • AMD Athlon II X4 620
  • ECS 780G Ultra
  • 4GB DDR2 800 RAM
  • 500GB Western D sata drive

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Installing within Windows using a CD has been disabled by default in 12.04 - see here to bypass: The only options Wubi gives from CD are to 'reboot and install normally' (from CD) or the 'CD boot helper' which uses a Wubi mechanism to boot the CD if your BIOS doesn't support it. – bcbc Jul 31 '12 at 17:16
@EliahKagan I should probably have marked it as a duplicate to the questions I linked to. I think it's pretty much the same thing. – bcbc Jul 31 '12 at 22:26

I reinstalled ubuntu with wubi.exe (2mb+) This time, I need to download ubuntu again from the internet. It took me 2 hour. Finally it done. Im able to dual boot windows 7 and ubuntu.

But Im still wondering why my ubuntu CD didn't work?? I don't want to wait for 2 hour every time I need install ubuntu on other pc...
