    If you want to try it out without actually repartitioning your drive, I recommend just using a virtual machine with software like Oracle's Virtualbox (www.virtualbox.org). I've always had issues with Wubi.

    Wubi does not work on gpt partitioned drives or Window 8 that is pre-installed.

    Grub4dos (which wubi uses) doesn't work with GPT disks (required by UEFI)

    wubi only installs as direct download in Windows, not from CD with 12.04
