    Nice one, spent half an hour looking for this updated version on the Wubi website to no avail. It’s as if they don’t want anyone to test it :)

    Much appreciated :)

    Installed and had a great time. When I rebooted the computer I selected ubuntu and it dumped all my work and reinstalled all over again. How can I prevent this?

  • Lgeek Post author

    I haven’t had any problem installing Ubuntu via Wubi. I’m not sure what when wrong when you said it “dumped your work”. When you said “reinstalled all over again”, did it successfully installed the second time?

    Great tutorial, useful for people that want to give Linux a try. Myself personally, I've been using Ubuntu as my primary OS for around 12 months now, but I'll definitely link a few of my friends, who are scared to play around with partitions, to this guide so they can try Ubuntu the pain free way!

    In the same above situation (ubuntu 10.04) i want to get rid of my windows partition completely. Just running my netbook on ubuntu. how is that possible please?

  • Liberian Geek

    You cannot completely get rid of Windows partition, but you can make Ubuntu the default choice at the boot menu. To to that, login to Windows and right-click 'Computer' then select Properties and click Advanced. From there you can select Ubuntu to be the default.

    Good tutorial.

    I want to say that if the installations is done with wubi the disk perfomance is not equal if we make a clean install. It is said in the wubi guide.
    I still think that wubi is a good option for a lot of people.

    thanks again for the guide and sorry with my English :)
