Note that Wubi does not need a physical CD, it can work directly with
the ISO. Hence the workaround is straightforward: put ISO and wubi.exe
in the same folder and run wubi from there.

Re: Could not Access the CD, make sure other applications are not using it
This is taken from the wubi guide
Quote:
Error "Could not access the CD"

This sometimes happens when a DVD media/drive is used and/or if the CD
is corrupted and/or if the support is of poor quality and/or the CD/DVD
is not finalized. Sometimes burning again on different CD media or using
a different CD device solves the issue. A quick workaround is to use
Wubi directly with the ISO. Just place the final desktop ISO and
wubi.exe in the same folder and run Wubi. Do not leave the CD in the tray.
</quote>

That might do the trick. Create a new directory/folder, copy the .iso
file (ubuntu-8.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso) and the wubi.exe file from the CD
into that new directory/folder. Then remove the CD and double click on
the wubi.exe.

Note: you can also download wubi.exe from here:
http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04.1/wubi.exe

Good luck!

Hi,

> Leonard was using Vista. Anyway, let us know how you get along with WinXP.

Ok, I have no solution on this problem. I can't install Ubuntu. Every
time after Step 5 of 7 totally the installation don't work forward.
Without any error messages. The system stay on there.
I tested it with the Desktop Live CD (AMD64 and I386). Both the same.
I often tried to create some new partitions but not successful. Or I
can't use the Partition Manager of Ubuntu correctly.
Anyone can say me in step by step instruction what I need to do to
create 3 new partitions?
1: for Ubuntu
2: for /home
3: for swap

Thanks in advance for helping.
Demetry

Demetry, did you try:

If so, what was the result?

Yes, I did it. The result was the same as from the CD... "Could not
access". I created a new folder on my hard drive, copied the both files
in their and started the WUBI.exe file. No CD on the CD/DVD drive in.

By now this must be driving you nuts... Can you please try 2 more
alternates - both will require downloads: cd and dvd, and both do not
involve Ubuntu.

Go to:
http://www.knoppix.org/
download the standard knoppix CD and the DVD.
http://www.knopper.net/knoppix-mirrors/index-en.html

The CD will boot a KDE version of linux on just about any machine.

The DVD version contains ADRIANE which is specifically designed for the
blind.
http://knopper.net/knoppix/knoppix53-en.html
http://knopper.net/knoppix-adriane/index-en.html

Karl Knopper is (the creator of knoppix) & he created the ADRIANE
version for his wife Adriane (who is blind). Ref:
http://www.efytimes.com/efytimes/fullnews.asp?edid=17094
<http://www.heise.de/newsticker/Oesterreichische-Linuxwochen-starten-in-den-Fruehling--/meldung/89345>

http://www.knoppix.net/
provides the documentation, forum links etc.

I'm not trying to blow you off Ubuntu and will be happy to continue
trying to help get your Ubuntu issues resolved; but Knoppix 5.3.1 (DVD
version) with ADRIANE just might be your best bet for exploring linux
from a liveCD/DVD.
