I used Wubi to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my desktop. It had Windows XP on it and the DVD drive died. And I would like to migrate to Ubuntu. So I used Wubi. But it seems that wubi installs ubuntu on a virtual hard drive. So I tried a reinstall with Unetbootin on my 8gb USB drive. But the machine is so old that it cannot boot from USB.
So that is my current scenario, and I would like to know if I can upgrade my Wubi install to a full install. No dual boot. Format the whole drive etc. All resources on the net use a CD or DVD drive. Which does not work for me. I have an USB Wifi dongle which I used to download and install Wubi from within Win XP. I also have a windows bootloader and afterwards grub bootloader :S
p.s. I have found this guide, is this the recommended option for me?
