I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 installed vie WUBI. MY question is can i install the program using WUBI or WUBI is a shorter version of Ubuntu 8.10 and that is the reason way i'm getting problems?
Please help :)
hi guys, having issues installing via wubi for some reason. should add i had previously installed 12.04 lts via wubi with no problems, only to have it borked from some update or something... uninstalled via wubi thru windows 8, trying to reinstall.
wubi.exe used to work fine with earlier versions of ubuntu, but there is some issue with wubi for 14.04. I used to install ubuntu along with Windows as an add/removable program. when both files (wubi.exe and iso) placed in the same folder and wubi was run, the whole process didn't take more than 1-5 minutes to complete.
But this is changed in ubuntu 14.04, I did the same process.
First time poster here. I am trying to run Ubuntu on Windows 7 64-bit using Wubi. On my first couple of tries it gave me the "Extraction failed with code: 2". Then I manually downloaded the iso ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-i386.iso (choosing the 64-bit version from the dropdown) to my desktop where the wubi.exe is. I'm still having the same issue.
I know... Wubi is bad... Wubi is dead... Wubi is lame... Wubi is hated by everybody and very dangerous, it fails on EFI hardware, everybody sings: "No Wubi - No cry", and so on...
Yes. I understand. You are right.
But... ;) I like to experiment.
Yeah. I love to try stupid things!
So, this is no newbie question. I am just a crazy nerd who loves to fiddle.
I am trying to silently install ubuntu using wubi. When I start wubi.exe on windows, a dialog box comes which asks for user information like username, password,etc. I want to skip this dialog box i.e. I want to by pass this step.
I have been very happy with wubi 10.04 running alongside Windows (on two laptops running XP and 7, respectively).
Before finally moving to wubi 12.04 I'd like to run my old 10.04 together with the new version by using triple boot (XP /wubi 10.04 / wubi 12.04) or - on the other laptop (WIn7/ wubi 10.04 / wubi 12.04).
I'm using Windows 8 (32bit) customer preview and installing WUBI Ubuntu 12,04.1.
I down loaded 32 bit installer from ubuntu dot com, The wubi installer says AMD 64 xt.
I had a previous 12,04 install and in the terminal typed in uname -a, it say's 64 bit.
I also opened detail from the system and it read 64 bit system.
