No partition was created as I believe it should have. No choice for boot between both systems. XP completely ignores installation. By trying to re-install, wubi informs that allready installed.

See if there is a C:\ubuntu directory, partitions are not created since wubi install within a file (C:\ubuntu\install\disks\root.disk)
There might be an issue with your setup when writing to C:\boot.ini, you should see a wubi option therein, or it could be a boot timeout issue

Changed in wubi:
