    Hmm never seen that before, can it be that the ISO is corrupted, you may want to download it again or try a different Ubuntu desktop

    Nope you need to download ubuntu-7.04-alternate-i386.iso (http://releases.ubuntu.com/7.04/ubun...rnate-i386.iso )

    Other desktops are Xubuntu / Kubuntu / UbuntuStudio... You need the equivalent ALTERNATE ISO.

    Place the ISO in the same folder where you have wubi and select the matching desktop in the settings dialog. You can also have wubi to download the ISO for you but that might be slower.

    here's my setup:
    i have 2 harddisks. my Windows OS is in Harddisk(A) and im installing the ubuntu using Wubi in Harddisk(B). is it ok? or will it is necessary to install ubuntu on the same harddisk?

    Try A and see if it makes a difference, let it run for a bit. I will double check tonight on my side.
