Could not install Ubuntu 2.5 on my Windows 7 computer using Wubi

I have a windows 7 computer and I just downloaded Ubuntu 2.5 and I would like to use it from my Windows machine. I used Wubi to install it but an error would pop up at the end of the installation process.

"Could not retrieve the required installation files." The installation also indicates a file name to debug the error "wubi-9.10ubuntu1-rev160". Attached is the screenshot of the error message I get during the installation.

Error:

Une emeur est survenue:

Could not retrieve the required installation files.

Firstly, you have a different type of issue, so you should start your own line, simpler that way. Secondly, setting up wubi is not combined start, not in the actual significance.

Wubi is just virtual Ubuntu working inside windows, without its own partition and file system, and without grub at all (only exclusive grub that you see). I don't use wubi individually and don't know much about it.

If you want to differentiate between operating systems on your PC, you first have to confirm your BIOS setup. If it is the recommended setup, you should check your bootable disk to see if there are any problems there, then try to make a removable disc bootable and if there is still the same problem, you must have a missing file on your disc. Change your DVD disc and try again. I think this will work.

Thanks.
