I plan to install Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS alongside Windows 7 in Asus A43E Series and I had an unsuccessful experience about the installation.

Here is the chronology:

  1. I installed Ubuntu via USB Stick. While the 3 options appear, I select the 1st which is "install inside Windows 7", but the process suddenly stopped. The next instruction was to remove the installation media and press the "enter" button which I did, but Windows 7 appeared not Ubuntu.

  2. Then I try another media, the DVD instead of the USB Stick and I had the same result.

Please help.

Try doing an MD5SUM on the ISO file, that will verify the file – Mitch May 26 '13 at 9:58

Instead of using Wubi (Ubuntu INSIDE Windows), install Ubuntu the standard way (in its own partition). See

Your disk may be GPT, and Wubi is not compatible with GPT.
