Please describe the steps you have taken so far. "I have tried a lot" and lots of exclamation marks are not useful for people who want to help you. – Sander Steffann Jan 25 '13 at 10:21
Also: this has nothing to do with Ubuntu so you asked your question in the wrong place... – Sander Steffann Jan 25 '13 at 10:22

The last I heard, WUBI didn't work on EFI-based computers, so you won't get Linux working that way unless you re-install Windows in BIOS mode. Instead, I recommend you look at either a conventional dual-boot configuration without WUBI or run Ubuntu in a virtual machine.
