Hi, I got my hp mini 210 netbook in the mail yesterday, and I decided to put lubuntu 12.04 on it, because it is very lightweight, and I have had some previous experience with similar distros. First, I used Unetbootin to create a live USB, and I was able to boot into it fine. When I click install, and select my language, it comes up with three options. Delete Windows 7, run lubuntu inside of windows 7,(which keeps all win 7 files), or partitioning it. Since this isn't my main system, I was fine with installing it inside of windows 7, so when I clicked on that, it said "restart to continue". I'm not sure what this meant, because when I clicked that, it automatically restarted and just booted into windows 7. How am I supposed to install lubuntu this way, if I am not given further instructions on installing. Also, I have windows 7 starter, basically a windows 7 for slower computers.

To install a wubi=inside windows you need to go to the ubuntu site and download the wubi.

This install used to be on the cd, not as of now though.
