I was trying to install via wubi Ubuntu 12.04 beta 2 but the installation was crashing due to an error... errno 5. Finally I installed ubuntu 11.10. If I try to upgrade it to Ubuntu 12.04 beta 2 or to 12.04 - when it released - may I have problem with my files if the installation fail?
Thank you...!

if you have an amd 64bit processor and amd ati graphic card there are afew step you should take there is a bug when you try to update from update manager..

I just successfully upgraded wubi install from 11.10 to 12.04 after 3 times failing and having to uninstall and re-install wubi..
the key is to install (apt python-apt) in advance of upgrading , and run the upgrade from term window not the manager ..
