I have a hp laptop with windoows 8 pre-installed.

I installed ubuntu-12.10 with wubi.exe, I got screen about about OS selection. But when i choose ubuntu, it crashes saying wubildr.mbr file missing.

I tried disabling secure boot and tried to install from live usb but no luck.

I need to keep windows 8 in my laptop as i work as a .Net developer, I have two spare partition each of 20 gb for this purpose in my harddisk. I want to install ubuntu in one of the partition and use another as swap area.

I am totally new to linux. Please suggest me how to do it. Thanks in advance..
