When does the laptop reboot? Immediately after you press Install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7? Or later? – TuKsn May 10 '14 at 16:37

Try this and don't forget to make a backup before you change any partition. If you want to use hibernate, the swap size should be at least the ram size. – TuKsn May 11 '14 at 9:59

I have had the same problem, you can make a boot able USB stick, then go to BIOS and select boot from USB drive.
