I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 version using wubi on my Windows xp PC. Now I want to install Ubuntu 11.10 using Wubi (It's easy and can copy entire root disk as a backup).

Is there a way to install this 11.10 with wubi without damaging the existing 10.10 wubi installation?

I already tried replacing the 11.10 root disk with 10.10 disk and reboot to 11.10, but it's a waste of time. I am using Ubuntu since 10.10 version and do not want to kill 10.10.

This doesn't answer your question, but you could install multiple versions in virtual machines using VirtualBox or something similar. –  Keith Thompson Feb 29 '12 at 3:23
Thanks but virtual box is slower than the real one, and i tried it once and figured out some issues with sound and video, –  Prasad RD Feb 29 '12 at 3:31

@Eric Carvalho I didn't find a answer as i expected, and i no longer use wubi to rock myself with ubuntu. I tried editing wubi files to make them both (10.10,11.10) appear in the boot selection but didn't work.but after sometime i found a trick to keep them both. I had win xp and win 7 at that time and i installed wubi in both os. So i could run 10.10 & 11.10 (not in the first try, had to repair grub as i remdmber) but soon realize the pain of wubi and moved to dedicated partition.(now i have 10.10,12.04,12.10, and fedora 17.) is that method suitable as a answer? Thanks –  Prasad RD Apr 4 '13 at 1:51
