I'm not sure about installing the tar.gz file, but you can download an ISO image from here: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-desktop-next/daily-live/current/. Note: these are unstable (as is the file you already downloaded) and could break easily. The file you probably want is this. If your tablet isn't 64-bit, then download this one. Burn it to a memory ...

But as usual YMMV. This and this ...

You can restore your whole tar archive but do it from a Live CD/USB instead. tar will not core dump this time. In either case, once done you need to run update-grub to update grub config file.

It is not a good idea compressing directly with 7z spcially on unix/linux systems: 7z does not preserve permissions and or user/group info. So: first tar, and then compress. As reported on 7zip wiki page at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7z#Limitations : Limitations The 7z format does not store filesystem permissions (such as UNIX owner/group ...
