Can you clarify if you want Ubuntu Touch or Ubuntu for Android? – Jorge Castro Aug 2 '13 at 19:47

I have found a link to ubuntu's wiki for the touch version with the instructions for a linux machine. Unfortunately I believe some steps require Linux to install ubuntu to a tablet.

Here is the link for the Install based on a Trasnformer tablet but it must be rooted and I don't know your device but good luck!

For Windows, You must make sure that the Android Developer Bridge is installed as well. I found these instructions [http://] (Not 10 rep so I cannot post two links.) for making that possible. First Forum post, second guide.

Unless you have a Nexus device though I would recommend NOT pursuing this avenue. Source

That's for Ubuntu Touch not Ubuntu for Android. – Jorge Castro Aug 2 '13 at 19:39
Correct. I didn't realize they had a separate version for phones now. I revised my google-fu and found an answer from this Question – Cole Busby Aug 2 '13 at 19:50
