Hi Mildred Hawk,

I am posting the following steps regarding "How to Install Wubi on your Windows OS". 

  1. First of all download the Wubi Installer(wubi.exe) from the Ubuntu website and then run the installer as administrator.
  2. You will be prompted to choose what type of installation. Choose "Install inside Windows" (for this tutorial purpose).
  3. On the next screen, select the Installation drive for installing Ubuntu. Drive must have at least 20GB for Ubuntu installation.
  4. On the Installation size, choose the size of the Ubuntu partition you want to have.
  5. On the type of environment, choose what type of derivative you want to install Kubuntu, Xubuntu or Ubuntu.
  6. Then select you preferred language.
  7. Give username and password to be used for logging in the Ubuntu.
  8. Then click "Install" to begin download of files and install procedure.
  9. After successful install it'll prompt you to Reboot the system.
  10. Once rebooted your Boot Menu will have both Windows OS and Ubuntu OS to select for loading.
  11. Thats it.

Installing Ubuntu with Wubi on Win PC


There are a certain number of Windows users who are interested on using and exploring Ubuntu, but don’t want to leave the operating system that aid them in their every day computing.

There are some who are brave enough and successfully installed Ubuntu on their computer running on Microsoft Windows through VM or Virtual Machine. Using a virtual machine, you can install multiple operating systems on a computer running on Windows as long as the hardware is still capable of handling the other operating systems.

Besides using a virtual machine to install Ubuntu on Windows, there is also a program called WUBI which will help you easily install Ubuntu on Windows as if it was just an ordinary application that can be removed via the Add or Remove Programs applet in the Control Panel. To get you going, first download WUBI from CNET Download com Wubi.

It can originally be downloaded from its official website, but unfortunately after trying to access the site, it is no longer accessible and redirects to Ubuntu’s official page.

After downloading WUBI, you should also download an ISO image of the Ubuntu flavor you prefer. After this, you don’t need to burn it on a blank CD. WUBI automatically searches your hard drive for any Ubuntu image but if it doesn’t find any available source image, it will then download the applicable image from the web.
