Please do not post duplicate answers on different questions. It just creates more work for the moderators. If the questions are so similar that the same answer works on each, then the later of the two is likely a duplicate and should be flagged as such.

comment Install ubuntu inside windows comes out in ubuntu CD instead of install parallelly
You have to start Windows first (so take the CD out, then boot to Windows and put it in), then run the installer from within Windows.

@hayd what version of Ubuntu are you running? It may not be available for that version of Ubuntu.

comment How can I install elementary OS on Ubuntu?
@hayd I'll have to check to see what it has been renamed to. elementary from the daily PPA is a moving target, so package names change often.

comment How to ensure Wine does not auto run .exe files?
That occurs because wine is set (by binformat support) to run exes when you attempt to execute them. I don't know if that can be disabled without removing wine though. BTW, your question is vague if that is what you mean.

I disagree. It does answer the question even if he beat around the bush to get to the point.

comment Lost around 200 GB of HD space after installing ubuntu
Your files are gone. You might be able to get them back if a professional can take a look at your hard drive an attempt to recover what hasn't yet been over written, but basically, you've borked it. BTW "installing Ubuntu over Windows 7" indicates you were trying to replace Windows 7. The fact that you didn't choose the option to install alongside Windows 7 backs that up. Is that (replacing Windows 7) what you were trying to do? If so, you would have lost all your files (and the installer has a warning about that IIRC).

comment Is it possible to burn to multiple CDs at once (with a GUI)?
I'll give the first solution a try when I get some time, and then your other suggestion. I tried burning with the internal burner today and ran into a niggling bug again (it fails to burn about half-way through, then refuses to burn anything until the system is restarted. Seems software related as it happened with two different drives). Hopefully I can eventually get a desktop for this task system back up and running.

comment Is it possible to burn to multiple CDs at once (with a GUI)?
Thanks for your in depth answer. I really want to avoid the command line for this as we to do things quickly and using long paths that change every month. The complication would stack up quickly, and I'm averse to adding that kind of trouble to the existing workload. I do plan to teach my "protege" the command line, but not yet, and not for this task of course. (The command line is wonderful, but there are times when it is not advisable/faster/better/useful).

I didn't fully understand your comment (what is "makes coasters?"). I'm thinking it is possible, from what I read, but just seems not to be common.

It might be possible to work around those errors with the correct dlls. I would probably not get an answer on that part back to you in a timely fashion though, I must admit :(
