Bear with me everyone, I am fairly new to the entire thing. But I seriously need something explained to me.

I downloaded Ubuntu 13, for my Alienware with windows 8, the newest version. When I try to install the program, it only says that I need to load the kernel first. How exactly do I go about that, because I am almost completely lost.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

is wubi still included in the 13.04 or 13.10 releases? I thought it was abandoned. In general I would advice to do a normal install and not a wubi anyway. –  Wouter Dec 23 '13 at 22:55
