View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu installation

April 3rd, 2010, 07:40 PM
I am using Windows XP and I want to have spare Linux installed on memory stick from which I would be able to boot my computer in case Windows fails.

I downloaded ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386 package on C:\ drive in directory ubuntu. Extraction was performed into the same directory ubuntu. I double clicked wubi.exe. And I got exception error "Exception Processing Message c0000013..." What did I wrong?

Try the instructions on this page for creating an bootable installation to your memory stick.

Try the usb-creator that comes with Ubuntu, it will make a Live USB that saves changes, (Persistent).
For this you need to boot from the Ubuntu live CD though.
