Ubuntu – How to install Ubuntu 13.04 inside Windows 8 from ISO


I have downloaded the ISO file of Ubuntu 13.04, and mounted it to a virtual disk using daemon's tool. I want to install it inside Windows, and thus launching wubi.exe with –force-wubi flag.
But the installation fails every time. How can I fix this?

Wubi as far as I know has been kicked out of 13.04. If you really want to install Ubuntu, I'd suggest you booting a live usb and install it along your current Windows 8 set up.

On the install screen, just select 'install alongside Windows' and use the slider to choose the size of your ubuntu partition (reckon 20gb will do).

It's an automated process so you don't have to worry about anything as everything will be handled by the installer.

Hope this helps.
