Trying to install Wubi on a small netbook (Dell Inspiron, Win7, with Intel Atom), and I have got as far as the GUI saying 'copying files'. This is the second try, and it is hanging at the same place as the first try. The status bar is about 66% of the way through, but is not moving. The last time I tried it, just before this, it stopped at the same place, and I left it for 90 minutes, but it did not move.

Does anyone have any idea of what I can do? I have read other Q&A related to this, but none seems to answer my question.

Don't use Wubi - burn a LiveCD yourself and boot that. –  whiskers75 Mar 29 '13 at 11:14
is there any specific reason behind choosing WUBI ? –  raaz Mar 29 '13 at 11:47
