WUBI not working under Windows 7
How hard i try, i cannot seem to get ubuntu dual booted under windows 7. I'm pretty dissapointed in the fact that i simply does not work, as i have tried the same 6months ago. Initially i installed Ubuntu on an external HDD, on partition number 3. Ubuntu would show up in the Windows Boot Manager but after clicking it i simply got:
Windows failed to start
application could not load. Corrupt or missing.
So i uninstalled, and guessed that maybe the external USB hdd was the problem. So i installed it on my secundary hdd. Now, it wont even show the windows boot manager and goes striaght to 7. I have tried burning a live dvd but for some reason, when the dvd is booted and im in the Menu, i cannot click anything. Except for looking at the additional options and modes. I want ubuntu really bad, but for some reasons the gods have decided that it shouldnt work. I am wondering on how to get ubuntu on my system.

Re: WUBI not working under Windows 7
Did you follow these instructions
As far as usb hdd some work, and some don't for booting. And wubi instructions here.
Note wubi and dual-boot are far different install methods.
