How about you download the image separately since your internet seems unstable. Also, you should use an updated version of Wubi. – Braiam Jan 1 '14 at 3:52

Wrong version of wubi.exe. Doesn't match the ISO you have on G:. Get the latest wubi.exe where you downloaded the ISO.

If you want to install from a 32-bit ISO on a PC with 64-bit architecture (which it appears you are doing), then run with the --32bit command line option e.g. wubi.exe --32bit. Also, don't put the ISO in the root of the drive, because Wubi will copy the partition instead of just the ISO (weird one).

If you install from the diskimage (without the ISO) then just use the latest version of wubi.exe.


To install with ISO:

  1. Download latest verstion of Ubuntu ISO and wubi.exe from the same place, and store in same folder (not root of drive). Run with --32bit option if you want to install 32 bit version
  2. Download latest version of wubi.exe and run standalone to install from diskimage (remove any existing ISOs you have from roots of drives or local directory).

@user230513 where did you get the wubi.exe? It's the wrong version: 01-02 16:22 INFO root: === wubi 12.04.1 rev273 === or you pasted the wrong logfile. – bcbc Jan 2 '14 at 20:25
