I have installed ubuntu 13.04 over Windows xp through wubi.exe because i have tried installing ubuntu through usb but it seems like my laptop usb is not supporting it though it shows SYSLINUX.........

in boot screen and hangs up that's why i quit usb installation and tried wubi.exe.

After installing Ubuntu 13.04 through wubi it seems like xp and ubuntu both are installed in same partition, thats a problem for me...

I want to delete xp without removing ubunutu.
