Ubuntu: “unable to find a medium containing a live file system” error when booting

I had this error when trying to install Ubuntu 10.04LTS on an Alienware M18x machine. Using a USB key.

Here is what I did to make it work:
– download the Ubuntu iso file
– get Wubi
– put those 2 files in the same folder (on the Hard Drive)
– launch Wubi
– you should see the Ubuntu version at the top of the Wubi window
– follow the instructions and… voilà!
