It will Automatically Give you the screen

Remember that you have to Run "Wubi.exe" in windows to install

Good Luck - Anymore questions then please ask

Soz man, thanks for the help. How many seconds does it give before automatically booting into Windows?

Default is 30 Seconds but you can change it by doing the following

Start > Right Click Computer > Properties

Click Advanced System Settings

Run Ubuntu 11 as dual boot alongside Windows-properties.jpg

Then click Settings under startup and recovery

Run Ubuntu 11 as dual boot alongside Windows-settings.jpg

Then change the Boot time

Run Ubuntu 11 as dual boot alongside Windows-change-boot-settings.jpg

Hope This Helps,
Josh

One last thing, is it possible to have to push a button so the boot screen comes up, and if I don't push the button it will just automatically boot Windows?

If you are worried about the dual boot and Windows is going to be your main OS then a virtual machine would be best.

VirtualBox or VMware Player

Download Center for VMware Datacenter and Desktop Products

Virtualbox runs Ubuntu 11 fully but VMware Player only seems to support the Ubuntu 10 desktop but is simpler to use. Both are free.

I posted a comparison of the two VirtualBox and VMware Player

First install Ubuntu using Wubi. Then we'll get to everything else.

I installed Wubi, but when I booted, no boot screen came up at all to select Windows or Ubuntu. Furthermore I checked the boot.ini file and I didn't see Ubuntu listed at all.

Windows 7 doesn't use the old "boot.ini" file.
