Default Re: wubu

This did NOT work. downloaded the files and put them in a 5gb folder, installed them the after the first reboot I got to the dual boot screen asking me to select either XP OR UBUNTU so I selects Ubuntu and all I kept getting was a black screen with errors and an immediate restart and back to the dual boot screen, I selected XP and booted up then removed Ubuntu then rebooted to make sure the dual screen had gone and it had, I tried the ubuntu 8.04 version with WUBI maybe the older one would have been better, also the download&installation time is about 45mins

It may still work, I found an article where one user said that he tries the 8.04 version and had problems so he uninstalled it and tried the 7. and it worked
