    Unfortunately, yes. It is unmaintained, broken and not recommended of course, but it still exists on current ISO of Ubuntu 15.04:

    [ubuntu] Re: Faulty 14.10 and windows 10

    14.10 has reached its “end of life". So, if you couldn't get updates, it is a feature not a bug ;-).

    Re: Install on EFI disk with Windows 7

    IMHO if you can split partitions to create own partitions for Ubuntu, there is no need for Wubi. Maybe, Wubi raises false expectations.

    The error message of Wubi means that you use Windows in EFI...

    [ubuntu] Re: Getting started.

    IMHO it is an old bug: bug 1155704

    That means that you use an old Wubi version which downloads an old development release of 13.04. It makes really no sense to repair this install.

    [ubuntu] Re: File system not clean

    IMHO, your problems are not related to Wubi. Wubi does not change the file system of your Windows partitions. So a Windows recovery tool should have no problems because of Wubi.

    Re: what the solve ?? help me

    IMHO you use Wubi for Ubuntu 14.10 but you do not use Windows in UEFI mode. This is also possible for Windows 8.1.
