Hi, i'm new here, i've got some problem with Ubuntu 12.10. I recently installed it with wubi form .iso file. Now i've got a problem, when I restarts computer and selecting Ubuntu it says something about Hibernation of Windows. It looks like windows is hibernated, i know, new windows is using hibernation to "fast boot", but someone know how to install ubuntu without removing windows?

I've got both systems x64.

Sorry for my very bad english.

I do not know wubi, but it does not install from a liveCD anymore but only from inside Windows. And it does not work with gpt patitioning, so if your Windows 8 was pre-installed it is secure boot with UEFI and gpt partitioning.
If you installed Windows 8 yourself with MBR(msdos) partitioning you should be able to download from inside Windows & install.

Wubi does not work on gpt partitioned drives or Window 8 that is pre-installed.
Grub4dos (which wubi uses) doesn't work with GPT disks (required by UEFI)

wubi only installs as direct download in Windows, not from CD with 12.04

WARNING for Windows 8 Dual-Booters
It defaults shutdown to a hybrid hibernation/off state for fast boot
But then files may be corrupted similar to Windows 7 Hibernation:
