    How to remove Wubi-installation?

    I installed Ubuntu with Wubi from Vista on my laptop.

    Can anyone tell me how to remove it?

    There's no "uninstall Wubi" in Add/Remove programs in the Vista control panel...

    There should be Uninstall "Ubuntu" not "Wubi". And in any case there should be an uninstaller in c:\ubuntu. Note that if you used Wubi rev 505 you will need the uninstaller in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#he...3dcb697b19aeb1

    Solved: How to remove Wubi-installation?

    There was no Uninstall Ubuntu either, but I found an uninstaller in the computer's d: partition - and that fixed it.

    Thanks for helping out!

    OOPS!

    Guess I didn't quite fix this problem after all...

    Even though the uninstaller has removed all the ubuntu files from the computer I'm still asked if I want to boot Vista or Ubuntu when I start the computer .. pretty weird.

    Do you know how to fix this?

    You can use EasyBCD for that. There should be a wubi log in your user temp folder, please post it.
