This question already has an answer here:

I'm currently installing Wubi, and the installer keeps getting stuck at about 75% - I have had this problem before and I think I managed to fix it by resetting/stopping something in Windows when booting into that, but i cant remember what it was. The last text in the installer (if it helps)is:

ubuntu kernel: [ 483.749080] [<c1064d60>] ? kthread_freezable_should_stop+0x60/0x60
ubuntu kernel: [ 483.749080] [<c15d04fe>] kernel_thread_helper+0x6/0x10

Thank you for your help :-)

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Are you installing with the 32-bit ISO? What graphics card do you have? What release of Ubuntu? Please can you add your wubi log file to the bug report (in %temp% directory called wubi-nn.nn-revnnn.log). Thanks – bcbc May 22 '13 at 18:36

Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get to a terminal and capture the logs:

sudo zip -r /host/ubuntu/ /var/log

Then sometimes returning to the installer unfreezes it allowing the install to complete: Ctrl+Alt+F7

When you've got the logs, please file a bug and attach the logs (C:\ubuntu\ to it:

If you get stuck, you can return to the terminal and run sudo reboot
