    I don't think you installed Ubuntu if you installed it on your 1st partition of 24.41GB, because it has 100% free space.

    Try the install again. At the 'Installation Type' dialog choose 'Something Else', select your partition where you want to install ubuntu and hit 'Change'. At the following screen select/chek Format, Mountpoint=/, Use As=Ext4 and proceed.

    The two logcial partitions are NTFS formatted; Ubuntu can't be there.

    Re: Ubunto using option

    In that case you Ubuntu didn't install at all. Because the all the space in 'D' is 100% free. Try again and re-install. You have to install to Hard Disk and don't use WUBI.exe. If you are sure that you have installed Ubuntu then Check Windows - Add Remove Software- and see if you have Ubuntu there. If it is there then just remove it, for detailed info Read Here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#Uninstallation
