    I think I'll try instead booting into my wubi-ubuntu and doing the second option you had for the automated script

    I'm now getting this, after giving up on the second option and opting for the first.
    Code:
    @ubuntu:~$ sudo bash wubi-move-2.0.sh /dev/sda4 
    
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: Partition /dev/sda4 could not be mounted for validation.
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: This is normal if the partition is unformatted or the file
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: system is corrupted. It could also mean you have entered
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: the wrong partition. The partition will have to be formatted
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: in order to complete validation.
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SELECTED THE CORRECT PARTITION.
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: Please close all open files before continuing.
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: About to format the target partition (/dev/sda4).
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: Proceed with format (Y/N)
    Y
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: Formatting /dev/sda4 with ext4 file system
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: Formatting /dev/sda4 failed or was canceled
    wubi-move-2.0.sh: Migration request canceled
    Are you sure that /dev/sda4 isn't your extended partition? That's the reason I added that warning in there (and that's one of the known reasons that the format will fail).

    Please output the results of:
    sudo fdisk -l (lower case -L)
    sudo blkid

    Also indicate which partition you are migrating to.
    Thanks

Personally I'd go RAM + 1GB, but the overflow amount differs between releases and memory usage (and there's no clear guide I've found).
    I think this also applies to me.

    Yes /dev/loop0 is wubi.

    Ok so since your target is /dev/sda6 and swap is /dev/sda5 you'd use:
    Code:
    sudo bash wubi-move-2.0.sh /dev/sda6 /dev/sda5
    I assume your BIOS is ok reading beyond 137GB as it will need to do this to load the grub boot files.

    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    Well it worked but windows 7 no longer boots, and it looks like a familiar foe.

    0xc000000f <--something like this, boot loader.


    I've also figure out that the vista loader on my laptop is actually the recovery partition's loader.

    What should I do to correct this?

    I'm already thinking about doing what I had to do before for this, first link in signature.

    Grub doesn't differentiate well between vista/7 recovery and main partitions. You need to look at which one partition has the boot flag set and use that one. Then you can customize the name if you like using this guide http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1287602

    EDIT:
    OUTSTANDING!

    I downloaded the app, the 'grub2' customizer, and saw that there was two windows 7 loaders, only on different partitions. I believe that was what was screwing it up, I'm now posting this within windows 7.

    I am now preparing a no man's land for media (music/pictures).

    Yeah thanks, I now have the issue of only being allowed 4 primary partitions. That's for another thread though.

    Just split /dev/sda6 using Gparted (you'd have to boot the wubi install or a live CD to do it - as you can't do it while it's mounted). But there is plenty of space there. You can't add another primary partition, but you can add as many more logical partitions as you need.
