I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop along with Windows (32-bit, off a bootable USB). When I click "Continue" to install alongside of 7, the laptop shuts down and then boots back into Windows! I don't want to replace 7, just dual-boot.

I tried F:\wubi.exe --force-wubi (my USB drive is F:) and it is downloading an iso file from a torrent now.

Update: using --force-wubi managed to install 12.04 and updated to 12.10 all running well and fine
