Hello this is my first time ever installing another operating system.

currently using acer aspire ES-13 on Windows 8 I downloaded the software from the offical website, then downloaded their USB installer as my computer has no CD-ROM drive.

Follow the instructions and use the 3rd option of installation for computers without a CD-ROM drive.

During the extraction process the install fails and displays the following error message, http://s7.postimg.org/keumbvz57/Ubuntu_Install_Fail.jpg

If you require the info from the log file let me know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks

Scott

That looks like a wubi install. What instructions are you following.
Wubi is not supported anymore.

You want to use Windows partition tools to shrink the Windows NTFS partition and reboot immediately to let it run chkdsk and make repairs for its new size.
You must have fast boot or the always on hibernation off, and usually better to have secure boot off.


Shows install with screen shots for both BIOS(purple) & UEFI(grub menu), so you know which you are using.

Also shows Windows 8 screens
