You will install Ubuntu 'outside' of Windows, you will only be using the Windows install/remove programs thingamajig (whatever they call it) to install it, and it will be installed in a 'virtual disk' which is effectively one huge Windows(NTFS)-file. You will also be using the Windows-bootloader to start.

But you will not be running Ubuntu and Windows at the same time. At startup, you will have to choose one or the other, you can't run both at the same time.
