    Wubi and Burg question

    First, how do I check that I am using Wubi? I installed ubuntu quite a while ago and forgot how I did it.

    Second, how do I install burg with wubi? Is it possible?

    NO, Burg is grub do not install it or take any grub-pc, or grub common updates in wubi.

    You see a grub menu but grub within wubi is not the same as a regular install.

    If you get a grub menu at startup you have a partitioned dual boot.

    If you get the windows boot from menu you have wubi.

    Re: Wubi and Burg question

    Are you able to boot into Ubuntu?

    Same for Windows?

    A word of caution: do NOT try and install/use boot managers like burg; you will break the Wubi install!

    You can check in Windows either under Add/Remove Programs or at the root of, presumably, the C drive.

    For general information, issues, as well as solutions for Wubi installs:
