    What is Wubi?

    Wubi is an officially supported installer for Windows users that allows Ubuntu to be installed and uninstalled in a safe, easy way as with any other Windows application.

    How do I download Wubi?

    Download Wubi from the Ubuntu Windows Installer Download page; this will download the latest version. You can download other versions from the Ubuntu pages on releases.ubuntu.com, e.g. 10.10, look for wubi.exe at the bottom of the page. Wubi is also included on Ubuntu Desktop and Kubuntu CDs.

    How do I install Ubuntu?

    Run Wubi, insert a password for the new account, adjust other settings such as the disk space, and click "install".

    The installation process from this point on is fully automatic.

    The installation files (approximately 700MB) will be downloaded and checked, after which you will be asked to reboot.

    Do so and select Ubuntu at the boot screen. The installation will continue for another 10 to 15 minutes and the machine will reboot again.

    That's it. Now you can select Ubuntu at the boot screen and start using it.
