Hi,
I have Windows Vista Ultimate installed on my quad core system. By accident I have made the partitions of my disk dynamic. Can i install wubi on a simple partition and will wubi, grub work?

Why Wubi? Why not just install on a partition and dual-boot? Faster OS that way.

Ubuntu live CD doesn't show the simple dynamic partitions, that's why. I had accidentally created a dynamic disks and none of my partitions are primary partitions. Hence, is there any method by which I can install ubuntu on these partitions?
