I want to install ubuntu onto my 64gb USB and I want to use wubi. I am running windows 7. Is this possible? Also is the ubuntu on the wubi 32-bit or 64-bit?

Why do you want to use Wubi? You can install Ubuntu on a stick without using Wubi. I have Ubuntu installed on an external hard disk (same procedure for a USB stick). If you remove the Wubi requirement I will post an answer. – To Do Dec 16 '13 at 10:13
Good point @ToDo :-) - but it can run rather slowly of some USB sticks... Anyway, there is a tutorial here for moving Wubi to a USB, and two more here and here to install a normal Ubuntu distribution to a USB. – Wilf Dec 16 '13 at 12:26
