I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 in separate partition...I already have windows7 installed in C drive which is the default OS.

Earlier ive installed ubuntu in the same separate partition and used it for long time. But due to some windows7 problem i had to unistall the Ubuntu....

But now when i try to re-install ubuntu in the same partition which is my disk F....It shows some .iso file error and shows initramfs_......and installation doesnt proceed further...

What would be the solution for this problem....(Ive tried to format the drive and then re install..,but it was of no use)

are you using the windows (wubi) installer or are you installing via a live cd or usb? personally I would recommend to use a live cd or usb. that way your Ubuntu shouldn't be totally lost when you reinstall windows. Also you can check your download using this method. –  Wouter Jan 7 at 8:31
