I have installed ubuntu 12.04 on my machine by wubi software. During installation procedure, install stop/pause or take too much time(45 min.) to install and stuck at that point.If I restart machine then after showing some error ubuntu get started and work fine ... If its the way to install ubuntu ?
installing ubuntu using wubi is fine, if you are a rookie and dont want mess up the partitions. But the best way to install ubuntu is by booting from the CD/USB and install it to the hard drive. as described here
