I downloaded the .iso file of ubuntu 12.04, burned it down to a CD, ran it, tested ubuntu, chose install ubuntu along windows 7 (my current OS) and after a while it said it was done, and after restarting I could use ubuntu. After restart windows 7 ran, although I read I could chose which OS to run. I checked on windows and yes, the partition type ext4 was there, but its just labeled as primary partition with no other function whatsoever. I restarted and accessed to the boot menu and the partition was not there.

Did you change any options when installing regarding the bootloader? When booting up keep tapping the down button. The grub menu could have a 0 timeout prevent it from displaying and just loading Windows as the default. –  captain_G Dec 8 '12 at 23:44
