I'm Rana. I have Sony Vaio with Window Vista. I have been trying to load Ubuntu 12.04 or 13.04 inside Vista but failed on several occasions.

Some time I received a message "wubi-12.04-rev272" i.e.

Have you burned the iso file to a cd or dvd? if so, boot your computer with the cd in the drive. if this doesn't work, Enter the BIOS with F2 on booting up then go to the boot options and make sure that the CD is at the top of the list. then try again. –  SimplySimon Jun 3 '13 at 12:16
    
That log doesn't show any problems. You're running the CD/DVD menu Wubi provides and then selecting Reboot to boot from the DVD. If you want to install inside Windows (Wubi) you need to refer to this: askubuntu.com/questions/125015/… (Otherwise provide more information on the errors you are getting and what you are trying to do). –  bcbc Jun 3 '13 at 16:47
