I'm trying to install ubuntu 12.4 from iso (i added a boot entry for the iso using easyBCD) I cannot use flash drive or CD/DVD

Upon selecting the ubuntu install entry i added with easybcd, i'm shown some command prompt screens for very short times (i can not read what they say) and then i see grub4dos prompt

This is what the top says

GRUB4DOS 0.4.5c 2012-06-19, Mem: 634K/511M/5374M, End:3548d9

additional info:

  • I previously tried to install ubuntu but failed during the installation process and went back to windows.
  • Currently, i have windows 8 installed on my first Hard drive (dynamic) and i'd like to install ubuntu on second (basic)
