I use Ubuntu/Edubuntu. I support the Wubi migration/resize scripts and occasionally blog about it. I'm also on ubuntuforums.org and twitter.

comment Trouble Uninstalling GRUB
It sounds like you have a UEFI computer so running bootrec /fixmbr won't help (that installs the windows bootloader to the master boot record). Instead you should go into your 'BIOS' settings (F2 at boot or lookup in manual) and set Windows as the default OS to boot.

comment Install Ubuntu 14.10 inside windows 7 SP1 Ultimate
possible duplicate of Wubi with 14.10 doesn't work - failed to partition the selected disk (short answer, if you want Wubi use a version other than 14.10; also 14.04 needs a workaround search around to see)

comment root file system?
Your problem is this: Wubi with 14.10 doesn't work - failed to partition the selected disk But Wubi won't give you what you want (just Ubuntu). So consider this: How do I install Ubuntu?
