The reason you only get "Install inside Windows" and then it reboots is this: Why don't I have the option ''Install Ubuntu alongside with them''
What you can do about it is this: My laptop already has 4 primary partitions: how can I install Ubuntu?
Why Wubi is freezing on expanding the image? I don't know, but if you want Wubi then you will have to provide the output of the Wubi log from the
%temp% directory i.e.
wubi-12.04.2-rev272.log. Also I recommend running
chkdsk /f first and possibly defragmenting. If it worked before and stopped working then there could be some
NTFS filesystem corruptiong that is causing problems.
After reviewing your log file, the only thing I can guess is that it's tripping over the space in your Windows user name. I've already seen cases where an apostrophe causes issues, but there's no diagnostic output in your case that shows why it is failing. I will take a look at the code to see.
You can do one of two things:
- Run it under a different windows account where the user name doesn't have a space
- Run Wubi with the 12.04.2 desktop ISO. This doesn't use the diskimage and doesn't need to expand anything so likely won't be affected. Note that to do this, you'll have to save the 12.04.2 desktop ISO in the same folder as Wubi, but you need to use a patched wubi (see Is there wubi.exe that can support ubuntu-12.04.2-desktop-amd64?
Either way, remember to use nomodeset to boot.
