you don't need to do all the crap at the start. just mount the ISO file to a usb, then boot off the usb. when the boot loader comes up and you start the installation process, you will notice that it gives you the option to install Ubuntu alongside windows. you then choose the amount of space you want to use for it and then finish the installation.
