I have a laptop with Whole Disk Encryption. Can I still install using Wubi?

which encryption utility did you use to encrypt and which algorithm did you use? – ashutosh May 1 '12 at 19:32

If you are able to decrypt it on boot prior to loading Wubi then yes, otherwise, no.

E.g. Safeboot can do this but ymmv. As always, backup your files regularly.
