Triple Boot: Ubuntu 11.10, Windows 8 (WDP), Windows 7

First of all change your default operating system through the OS selection screen displayed during the boot process to Windows 7, next boot into Windows 7 and use wubi.exe to install ubuntu 11.10 ISO image (wubi.exe and the ISO should be in the same directory) you downloaded or if you have the Ubuntu CD launch wubi.exe from within the media. Once its installed restart windows 7 and select Ubuntu to complete the installation.
A issue with having windows 8 (Windows Developer Preview) is that, you could at times not find Ubuntu in the startup boot menu, loading up Windows 7 then restarting bring Ubuntu back on the list.
