I have a problem to install Ubuntu12.04.3 LTS in my computer.

My Computer is DELL(CPU: P4, 3GHz RAM: 1GB HDD: 20GB).

I downloaded Ubuntu12.04.3 LTS and installed this by using wubi.

Then it was installed on rootfs.img file in FAT32 file system.

But I want to install Ubuntu on EXT4 file system.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You need to install from the full image, either as a secondary OS or as a replacement for your existing Windows install. The wubi install is to install inside the Windows system. – dobey Feb 3 '14 at 2:45
Just take the giant leap of faith, over-write anything remotely resembling a Windows partition and commit to Ubuntu. – Deryck Feb 3 '14 at 2:59

The wubi is used to install Ubuntu inside windows so that ubuntu will look like as any application inside windows and for that wui will install ubuntu using a filesystem that windows could understand and sure that windows will not recognize EXT2/3/4.

For that you can't install ubuntu usign wubi with ext4 filesystem.

You have to install Ubuntu standalone or if you want to keep windows you can just install it alongside windows.

For more information and learn how to install Ubuntu you have to read How do I install Ubuntu?
