Wubi installs ubuntu as an applicataion in Windows 7. Have you considered a native install of Ubuntu onto a separate partition, then you will have the Grub boot loader which will let you choose your OS at boot time?

If you are using wubi then there is no need to burn an actual ISO disc. Try creating a new folder and name it anything you wish. Place wubi and the Ubuntu disc image together inside the folder next to each other and then run wubi (you may have to right click and run as Administrator). Wubi should then install Ubuntu from the disc image in the folder.

I personally myself though would recommend that you install Ubuntu on a separate partition or a second hard drive as already mentioned in the post above.
