RESOLVED: I'm just going to make a partition on my hard disk


I'm not very good with Linux, so bear with me.


I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.04 "Inside" my Windows Vista Home Premium computer, but I don't get a boot menu choosing to boot into Windows or Ubuntu.

What, exactly, do you mean by "inside?"

What steps have you attempted thus far?

If you are talking about installing Ubuntu using Wubi, see if the info in the link below will help you.
http://wubi-installer.org/faq.php

EDIT:
Are you seeing the boot screen as shown in the link above when starting your computer? If you are, using the up/down
arrow keys, highlight Ubuntu and hit enter on your keyboard. Your computer then will boot into Ubuntu.
You likely only have a few seconds to select a different OS other than the one that is highlighted before
your computer will load into the first OS on the list.

Amazing Andrew asked what steps you have taken so far.

Did you download Ubuntu from the Wubi site?

Did you create a CD after downloading from a different site other than Wubi?

1. Downloaded the ISO from the Wubi site

2. Mounted it with Daemon tools

3. Went through the installer. Chose "Install inside Windows"

4. Completed installation, rebooted

5. No boot screen

Why did you use daemon tools?

All that is required is the download of Wubi and then double click on it to start the install in Windows.
After starting the install and filling in some info, the rest is automatic.

Is Ubuntu now in your Add/Remove list?

Are you using the right CD image? I noticed the log mentioned that your computer is an AMD64.
