    I think something has gone wrong If you only started with 6GB then you'll have less than 6GB to copy - so you shouldn't wait any longer. Hit CTRL+c to cancel. Then remove the /host/ubuntu/disks/new.disk and try again, but this time use the --verbose or -v option. It will show the progress of the copy.

    Also, make sure that you have unmounted any partitions that are not mounted under /media (or /host). e.g. if you have a custom mountpoint like /mydata or /win etc. (That's also mentioned in the known issues list)

    Question Re: HOWTO: Resize the WUBI virtual disk

    Hi guys,

    I'm try to execute the automated method mentioned here, but when I enter the command in the terminal, it asks for my password, then just returns to the command prompt. No error message; nothing. I've saved the script in Downloads, and that's where I'm running the sudo bash command. Any ideas what's wrong here?


    Thanks,
    Scott

    Please copy and paste the terminal contents so I can see the full command you entered. Thanks

    With this method, you are running from a live CD environment, not your actual wubi install. Then you have to identify and mount the partition that contains the root.disk.

    e.g. in my case it's /dev/sda3 (change it for your own)
    so you would type:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir -p /media/win
    sudo mount /dev/sda3 /media/win
    (first command created the mountpoint, if it didn't already exist. Second command mounts the partition containing the root.disk)

    Then,
    Code:
    du -h --apparent-size /media/win/ubuntu/disks/root.disk
    Please explain in detail all steps you are taking so that I can figure out what the problem is. Thanks

    Try:
    Code:
    sudo bash wubi-resize_1.3b.sh 30
    With Ubuntu you run with normal user privileges, but can elevate it to root as required with "sudo". See here

    Do not delete the OLDroot.disk until you have confirmed the new root.disk is working (or keep OLDroot.disk as a backup).

    NEVERMIND, I FOUND OUT,SORRY FOR BEING A NEWB, BUT IM LEARNING FAST.
