This question already has an answer here:

I want to install x64 Ubuntu 12.04.2 on my HP laptop. I don't like grub, so I want to install without it or install grub onto another partition and then add grub to Windows' bootloader (and set grub timeout to 0) . Is that possible and if yes, how can that be done?

Thank you!

You can use a VMWare Player and load the iso. You can have a look at the youtube video below.


For dual boot with windows and ubuntu.

but that's virtualisation. It probably won't run x64 systems and will be slow like virtualbox is –  Matej Kranjec Apr 13 '13 at 18:30
it does depend on your system configuration also. I have installed the same and i don't see any slowness. I have sonyvaio vpcsb37gg lappy with i5 intel on it –  Raghunandan Apr 13 '13 at 18:31
I want to install Ubuntu normally, remove grub, reinstall Windows' bootloader again and install grub to a different partition and add grub to Windows' bootloader –  Matej Kranjec Apr 13 '13 at 18:33
He didn't ask how to dual-boot Ubuntu nor how to have it in a VM, he asked if he could have Ubuntu and Windows but not use the GRUB bootloader and add grub to Windows' bootloader. As I mentioned, the exact answer to this is here. –  Alex Apr 13 '13 at 18:34
@Alex agreed i missed the point. –  Raghunandan Apr 13 '13 at 18:35
