View Full Version : [kubuntu] Wubi Installation Failure -kubuntu netbook

November 18th, 2010, 03:19 PM
I have tried several different times to install on a Acer Netbook. This is the error message I receive

"Cannot download the metalink and therefore the ISO"

I have tried installing directly from hard drive and also via usb stick

Please help.

the log file usually contains important info (in the %temp% folder).

but in general, this message indicates that wubi tried and failed to download a file containing the md5 hashes of the releases for the version of wubi.exe you are running. It uses this file to verify that it has found a valid CD image (.iso) file or to validate the .iso it is about to download if it didn't find a valid image.

But if you pass on the log file (within
[/SIZE]] tags it should be clear what the prob is.
