    hi everyone, thanx for the unstoppable support for this peace of work (ubuntu)
    I have one question before i deleting windows7
    I install ubuntu 10.10 using wubi, and everything is fine, now i want to delete windows 7, does that make problem, because i saw in add/remove panel in windows7 that ubuntu is appearing there, so i'm afraid that if i delet windows7 i lose ubuntu and all my customisation on it,
    Peace be upon you

    That is correct, you'd lose it all!

    bcbc wrote an excellent guide on migrating Wubi to a hard install:

    Hi and Welcome

    You are correct , if delete Win 7 you will loose both operating systems, be sure you don't need Win 7 for anything prior to deleting.

    You have a couple of options , one download the Ubuntu ISO of your choice , 10.04 or 10.10 and do a clean installation or a traditional dual boot with Win 7.

    The second is , moving the Wubi installation to it's own partition and removing Windows .http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...wubi+partition

    I think formating the drive and doing a clean installation is the best option.
    Infinite diversity in infinite combination.
