I think I might give it a try since I unsuccessfully tried to install Ubuntu 7.04 and Suse 10.2. This program here may be the solution to my problem. :unsure:

no go. the loader can't find a drive. wasted over two hours doing this...off it comes.

So still no luck MO <_< ...maybe its better to wait for the next beta or final release ! :unsure:

~update~

Too curious, so decided to give a try right now.

Sadly i need to download Ubuntu again... i thought Wubi would ask me for the DVD or ISO... but its an alteranate image... but no prob.

I couldnt see any performance diference between Wubi install and the regular install. Thats very easy to install... Wubi asks for an user login and password, destination folder and the distro you want to download (Ubuntu, Kubuntu or Xubuntu)... Wubi adds an entry to Windows boot loader and than you have a classical and safe multi-boot. You can even install it to a system that alreday has other linux distro, grub will still be the primary loader and windows boot loader will show the Wubi entry.

It creates 2 files on the base OS boot drive: wubildr.mbr and wubildr.

my install folder bellow:

To uninstall go to control panel and remove it like any other app.

Ok all,

Where do i start....

I have never run Linux I know nothing about it, not even how to take screenies or even how to save them, I was looking for a program i could try it out without ruining my other OS's or boot sectors. I have found it in Wubi.

This program ROCKS!!!

Just installed minutes ago, with absolutely NO GLITCHES, I have installed Kubuntu. I dont even know how it installed, i did nothing!! maybe 3 clicks of the mouse. Here are some screenies, please excuse the camera, i will get better in Kubuntu, but im soo excited :unsure:

Cool bit of software. I'm glad it worked for you guys. Maybe this will be an official installation method in the future.

I remember BeOS let you install it in a file on Windows just like this. RIP BeOS.
