June 13th, 2010, 06:08 AM
Dear all,
I am new here. I was trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/index.html) on my windows xp.

dowloaded and installed wubi. All worked well and system asked me to restart. After restart ubuntu was showing on multi boot screen, selected it. Then the system asked me to ESC installation or not, i didn't Esc. The Ubuntu screen was showing, but all of a sudden an error message saying INSTALLATION FAILED occurred.

I don't know where i went wrong. Plz help me somebody. Thanks

My system
Processor: Intel pentium IV
Ram 1 GB
Harddisk:- 160 gb

You most likely did nothing wrong you just put CD in tray select Wubi install, choose how much space you want to use, your password and install. The program does the rest.

So go to your Windows and look in C: drive right next to USers it will say Ubuntu open that folder and pick uninstall. After that is done do the Wubi thing over again.
