Hi
i've recently installed ubuntu using wubi "Inside windows option" and i allocated 10 GB for it. now i've managed to free a partition on my hard disk and am ready to install ubuntu directly to my hard disk but i don't want to lose all my installation for two reasons :
1)it wasn't easy for me to setup all the drivers i needed for sound , graphics ... etc
2)i got a 256 DSL and it took like 5 - 6 hours at total so that i could download and install everything i need + the updates. and i don't want to repeat this hours again

so any way to save my ubuntu installation?
like a repack that i could put temporary on a usb disk and then reinstall again?
isn't that the idea of linux somebody take an old one update it and then reinstall it? except i want to add just apps and updates?

thanks.

As Another option you could use LVPM (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#How%20do%20I%20migrate%20to%20a%20real%2 0partition,%20and/or%20get%20rid%20of%20Windows%20entirely?) to transfer you wubi installation to its own partition.
