View Full Version : Wine and Wubi

I got to thinking, and in fear of destroying my computer I'd like to see if anyone else is up to this;

WINE is made to run windows programs, on GNU/Linux. Wubi is made to install Linux on Windows...

What would happen if you try to install Ubuntu with Wubi on Linux using Wine? Would it create a black hole? Devour the Hard-Drive? Implode? Explode? Divide by 0? Start yelling "DANGER! DANGER" flailing its mechanical arms? Even just grow said mechanical arms?

Wubi wouldn't have a NTLDR to boot with.

CharmyBee is correct, it wouldn't have the bootloader it's expecting.

If I had to guess, it would esplode.
