Can I download Ubuntu 10.10 using Wubi? I tried upgrading through Ubuntu 10.04 and it didn't work, in fact, I was unable to boot back into Ubuntu and had to uninstall, then re-install using Wubi.
I am brand new to Linux but love Ubuntu and want to use 10.10. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Why not dual boot?

This wiki is outdated
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#Upgrading
but it seems that not every release is supported in upgrading and 10.04 to 10.10 may be one of them.
Uninstalling Ubuntu & Reinstalling would probably be best

You could install virtualbox and run ubuntu in that.

Wouldn't that result in loss of performance as opposed to Wubi or DualBooting?

Don't get me wrong I love VirtualBox. I have 10.10 installed and Windows 7 in VirtualBox but that's only because maybe once a month I'll open up Windows

I thought when I used Wubi, that made my system 'duel bootable'?

I think you're right.
Thanks again

No, when you used Wubi, you installed Ubuntu inside of windows.
For dual boot, Windows and Ubuntu would be installed on separate partitions

I have tried ever combination of installing ubuntu and windows and the best is to first install windows and then put the Ubuntu CD in the drive and install it. Just chose run side by side with other OS's. It will create a separate partition and install ubuntu. I have been running with this kind of setup since 2005, and this way I have the best of both worlds. I do use Win7 once in awhile, but my main OS is Ubuntu.
I tried Wubi, but it has it limits so this way is best for me.

OK ... then avoid Wubi for now. See the Wubi-related issues below:

dont use this method if your running vista/7.
That is, unless you have your repair/recovery disks handy.

I have done this with Vista and Win7 and have never had one problem.
