Just for the record, I'm not really up on the details and don't use
Ubuntu, but ...

I think WUBI is partially broken and mostly unsupported. I also think
they're going to remove it entirely soon. A quick check of Wikipedia
confirms this:  "It is due to be removed in 13.04."  (Though maybe
someone will fix it, but I kinda doubt it.)


Hmmm, it occurs to me that 13.04 has already happened (been released),
so lemme check ...

Have a new PC with the Windows 8 logo or using UEFI firmware?

Please use a 64-bit flavour of Ubuntu, installed directly to its own partition
rather than using the Windows installer.
Windows installer is not compatible with Windows 8 or UEFI firmware,
and is not available for Ubuntu 13.04.
Windows installer for Ubuntu Desktop

With Wubi, our officially supported Ubuntu installer for Windows, you
can install and uninstall Ubuntu easily and safely. For 12.04 LTS

(Just FYI.)
