will Wubi Instaler ever be returning in ubuntu 14.04 or later i have a friend that really wants ubuntu and is upset becuase he cant figure out how to create a partition on his hp pavilion g6 64bit laptop. i have tried many times to help him but i can not figure out how to boot form a live USB on his version of BIOS. His version of BIOS is Insyde H20. despite i did it on my computer and have a successfull dual-boot with windows 8.1 64 bit and ubuntu 14.04 64 bit with a similar BIOS Version. I would also really appreciate if could bring back the older Wubi installer throught the ISO file and just upgrade ubuntu manually once installed.

I really appreciated yur time and i hope Wubi will be brought Back.

I'm sorry for you, but there are no plans at all about reintroducing Wubi, so the answer is no
