Hi I have been looking in to installing a Linux image from within Ubuntu as I ran out of Cd's.

I am currently experiencing problems with my 12.04 and would like to install a second copy to an empty partition on my hdd for testing fixes, the problem I am having is most guides show how to do this from within windows but I want to do it from Ubuntu.

I tried Unetbootin but just got a black screen after GRUB any suggestions?
