Which version are you trying to install and how are you trying to install it?

Do you want to install Ubuntu as a replacement for Windows or as Dual boot with Windows?

I would recommend you create a DVD and do it that way.

Instructions are here

The OS is called Ubuntu, not Ubantu.

Did you install using Wubi, or did you delete the 'E drive' partition then install in livecd to the new freed space?

Thanks

Did you change the boot mode to ide mode in BIOS and installing it?
you can change it pushing F8 or F12 in your start menu when you start your Pc.

Can you help with this problem?
