    Closes after expanding

    Hi!
    I have a problem, I just wanted to use WUBI for my Dualboot Ubuntu, but after WUBI "expands" the files, it just closes (no reboot dialog, no bootmanager entry). heres the logfile:

    It means you have dynamic drives setup in windows. These aren't supported by linux. (The actual error is windows not letting you boot from a dynamic volume that won't yet be in existence at boot time).

    is there a possibility to convert it to a basic hdd without deleting the partitions?

    Yeah... you can use some partitioning tool. Others have used EaseUS free version to do it. e.g. here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1692248

    I don't have exact details, but it sounds like it wasn't a big deal.
