@Dinesh - Do you have any experience in this aspect as the download is quite big and it took like 8 hours to download last night? I wanna try everything before having to re-download.

I would suggest you to 1st download the ubuntu .iso file and then save it to desktop. Then use any free program like SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive to mount the .iso so that it comes up as a DVD drive. Then Run wubi and it must work.

Well how is that any different from running the install off of the disk that was made?

don't redownload the iso, according to the log file its fine, I am guessing your issue lies with Wubi. I would recommend trying another app to get ubunti running within windows.
