I am trying to install ubuntu on my Netbook. I already have windows XP and i am using the windows installer to install Ubutu 12.04 LTS.

While installing, it successfully downloads the files(takes about 15 minutes or so) but when extracting at the end, ut gets stuck at the halfway stage. I tried this on another netbbok with XP and exactly the same problem.

Anyhelp? Or any alternative? I am installing ubuntu because that is the only thing i know. If there is any alternative, i would loveto hear.

Use the alternative way by manually downloading the ISO file and save it to the same folder as the WUBI installer file then recheck.

Thanks. Do i need to do something with the iso file or just download it and put it in the same directory and then run the windows installer? I am downloading ISO file now, will take some minutes. –  detraveller May 22 '13 at 15:17
