I have installed Ubuntu9.10 as Dual Boot using Wubi, everything worked perfect but after the installation completed the PC started freezing, I have reinstalled Ubuntu using the same Wubi, but things just don't work, it freezes after a few seconds. I really want to use Ubuntu so please help me out and I have the ISO file for Ubuntu, so any other option to install Ubuntu is welcomed. Also, here's some information about my PC configuration:

RAM: 512MB, Currently Installed OS: Windows XP Service Pack 3, Processor: Pentium 4

Thanks in advance...

Not programming related. use – Vivek Bernard Jul 3 '10 at 16:26

I have Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10 (about to upgrade) dual boot, but I don't use wubi... I installed Windows XP first, then Ubuntu and grub automatically detected my other partition and set up grub accordingly, now I use grub to pick the OS on boot.

I don't know if Wubi offers anything more than that, but my setup works flawlessly. If I ever lose my MBR for any reason, I just boot from the Ubuntu CD, and install grub again.

Hope that helps.

Not really sure that "well, I did something different and it works for me" is useful... – Piskvor Jul 3 '10 at 17:14
