Wubi is no longer supported as of ubuntu 12.10 (I believe) except for special situations. Instead of just mounting it like that I suggest creating a live usb or dvd and booting up a full live session.
Also, if you were trying to use wubi to install so you can use ubuntu from within windows 7 then my recommendation is to use a virtual machine as you can make a full virtualized installation from wubi.
You should not use Wubi. It has been discontinued as of Ubuntu 13.04. It had many bugs and was unstable in general.
However, if you really want to, you can still run Wubi. Note that you will need to have Windows 7 to run these steps. Wubi is not tested/supported on Windows 8. They do not play nice.
- Start by copying the
Wubi.exefile from the ISO image to your desktop.
- Double-click it.
- Follow the install wizard.
If you can, always install Ubuntu on its own partition. It'll be faster, stabler, and easier to fix if problems come up. There is no guarantee that Wubi will work as expected (or even work at all). You have been warned!
