View Full Version : [wubi] wubi install in virtual machine

October 23rd, 2009, 12:58 AM
Right now i have a wubi (Ubuntu 9.04)/ windows 7 machine. There are times when i want to boot into the ubuntu install and take advantage of the extra speed and performance that a "real" install offers.

There are other times, however, when i want something from my Ubuntu partition and don't want to have to reboot to go get it. I can transfer files from my Ubuntu install to a place windows can see them, but if i forget to do this, i have to restart, boot into Ubuntu, then move them and reboot back into windows.

I would like to be able to run my wubi install in a virtual machine for the simple tasks, such as transferring a file, or when windows is doing something that i don't want to interrupt. Is it possible to do this?
