Hi all,

I'm planning to install 11.10 on a few computers with wubi. I was about to download wubi.exe and the desktop AMD64 ISO when I saw a file called "ubuntu-11.10-wubi-amd64.tar.xz" among the files I can download (see here (ftp://ftp.free.fr/mirrors/ftp.ubuntu.com/releases/11.10/) for instance).

This XZ archive contains two files:


wubildr
root.disk


It seems to be a kind of "pre installed" wubi installation, but I can't find any documentation/howto.

Any idea ?

Best,

Aurel.

Assume you haved pasted wubi.exe and ubuntu-11.10-wubi-amd64.tar.xz in D:\

You have to use it like this

1. Open cmd
2. type



wubi.exe --dimagepath=d:\ubuntu-11.10-wubi-amd64.tar.xz


Wubi will open up. Press Install after selecting drive and size. Now instead of downloading the image, wubi will start extracting after you start choose a drive and press install.
