I have dual booted Ubuntu with Windows 7 through wubi in a new partition, then removed Windows 7 and installed Windows 8. Now, I want to have a fresh copy of Ubuntu 12.04LTS. Can I just run wubi again and ask it to install Ubuntu in the same partition?

Does this method have any drawbacks? I have heard many people saying that if we uninstall Ubuntu, Windows will also become unusable. How can I avoid it?
