I am running Windows 8.1 32-bit (but my PC can run 64-bit also) and whenever I try to install Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit with WUBI on my new 19GB partition, soon as it gets to the end it says

"An error occurred:"

"Permission Denied."

and then it says check the log file in the AppData folder (which I checked).

I've previously installed Ubuntu on the same system but I thought something was wrong because it kept going to a terminal and I thought the GUI didn't install so I uninstalled to try again but it got the error above. What do I do?

Wubi isn't supported anymore. –  saiarcot895 Jul 27 '14 at 3:06
I only have the ISO with no CD. What do I do? –  kprovost7314 Jul 27 '14 at 3:06
Do you have a USB stick? –  saiarcot895 Jul 27 '14 at 3:07
No. Does SD Cards with enough memory count? –  kprovost7314 Jul 27 '14 at 3:08
@kprovost7314 You could burn the ISO to a CD. –  Charles Green Jul 27 '14 at 3:09
