Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I recently installed ubuntu 12.10 on my old and dying but reliable laptop alongside and installation of windows 7.My laptop is not able to boot from the DVD drive or from the usb (my arrow keys dont work at all so therefore I'm unable to go into bios and change the boot order). I first installed ubuntu 12.04 on a separate partition using WUBI and then upgraded to 12.10. I would love to be able to delete my windows partition and just use ubuntu.It has really given life to my computer as I can't afford to buy one for anytime soon. I tried to migrate WUBI but I was so thoroughly confused and disturbed at how hard this was that I just stopped. I have absolutely no options.If someone could please offer a solution or a really dumbed down explanation of migrate WUBI it would be greatly appreciated.
