Windows 8 currently uses UEFI so it might be problematic with Wubi on Windows 8 so you have to download Rufus (fastest one that I have tested) and the ISO. Download Rufus: http://rufus.akeo.ie Since you have already the ISO File plug your USB Device in a fastest port possible to ensure that Rufus will install system files in a faster way.

As update from 9.04 to 16.04 is not supported and you don't have any other blank DVD available, the only way is to do a clean install from usb. In my opinion the easiest way is to download the latest startup disk creator from launchpad because you will probably get errors if you use unetbooin in your old os. So download and install the packages ...

While @Zacharee1 post mentiones already the most relevant facts i would like to add that it might make sense to install the server version instead of the desktop ones. Its basically just a smaller amount of default packages. It gives you the option to start a bit more from scratch and have something small to get started - choosing & installing a desktop ...

Install any of the currently supported versions. They all should work. There are four supported versions currently: 12.04, 14.04, 15.10 and 16.04. 12.04, 14.04 and 16.04 are all LTS (long-term support) releases, which have pretty self-explanatory descriptions. 12.04 will be supported until mid-2017. 14.04 will be supported until mid-2019. 16.04 will be ...

The issue was caused by multiple images added to the VM. After I removed all the images excepting the GParted ISO, it started working. After that I got another little problem: The GParted Live CD failed to continue after selecting the basic options (mode, language etc.). The solution was to enable the "EFI" option.

The GParted Live .iso file is a bootable CD image. Did you connect the .iso image to the Optical Drive in the VM and then start the VM?

Note that at least as of Ubuntu 16 LTS, you can do the partition imaging from the disk utility (search for "disk" in the Dasboard).

I had the same problem and came to the conclusion that the ISO (from the Ubuntu.com website) for version 16 does not have the setup.exe or live boot files. I downloaded version 14 and installed that instead (haven't tried to upgrade from there, but that seems like the way to go). I'm not sure how to tell UBUNTU of the issue. This forum doesn't look like ...

I tried to install Ubuntu Studio x64 for a month and repeatedly encountered this problem. It was also losing hard drive data and throwing dpkg errors... Running the system from a usb drive and encountering several other issues was becoming frustrating so I resolved to resolve the issue! I purchased a new HD... not a solution. I disconnected the CD drive... ...

It's the same ISO. One of the purposes of a virtual machine is that an OS behaves the same as it does as on a physical machine. (But maybe that's an oversimplification.) Anyway, the booting and installation process is the same on a virtual machine as on a physical. But, the virtualized OS may require some addons to run better in a VM. For example, the ...
