I downloaded the image file and wrote it to dvd. then the Ubuntu was loaded from the disk. when I tried to install they first asked for language, then checked if i have 4BG space and an internet connection. then they gave me options for installing inside windows 7, removing windows 7 and installing ubuntu and other options. when i selected 'install inside windows 7' the system restarted and booted from the dvd again. I tried it several times but i am unable to install inside windows 7. please help....
