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 After upgrade to ub 14.04
That's not too many kernels. You can save a couple of hundred MB per kernel. Try running baobab (Disk usage analyzer) that should tell you where the 25GB lies. PS add @bcbc in your comment if you want me to be notified.

comment Upgrade WUBI installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS
Not sure if this has been fixed: askubuntu.com/questions/453411/… You'll need to hold down the Shift key when booting after the upgrade to edit the grub menu entry.

How many kernels do you have? Either run ls /boot/vmlinuz-* | wc -l from a terminal, or browse to your /boot folder in Nautilus and count them

comment Permission denied error when installing Ubuntu 14.04 with Wubi
You need to look at the log file in %TEMP% directory (wubi-14.04.xxxx.log). Pastebin it if you want help. Note this is a Wubi install you are attempting - which is not recommended. Note that Windows hides part of the path to the log file, so you need to use the full path to open it, or navigate to the %TEMP% directory first.

comment Wubi Installation program for 14.04 reported a “Permission Denied” error
There is no wubi.exe for 14.04.1 (so it would try to download 14.04 anyway). The permission denied could be for other reasons though - so look in that log file you think doesn't exist - it does but part of the path is hidden by windows. Either open the whole thing in notepad as you have written it, or go to the %TEMP% directory. Maybe pastebin it. But actually @Akiva is correct. Better not to use Wubi these days.

comment Wubi ignores .ISO file and downloads from beginning in Ubuntu 14.04
Start by reviewing the log file in the %TEMP% directory. Or pastebin it if you need help. If you are using 14.04.1 it won't work because they didn't release a Wubi.exe for 14.04.1 (so it will always download the 14.04 image).

comment Expand Wubi Ubuntu disk size from Windows 7
First off, backup the data you don't want to lose. Doesn't that seem the logical thing to do? Then see this link about problems using those newly added instructions that may or may not work (I have no idea) askubuntu.com/questions/483097/…

comment Resizing wubi disk size does not reflect the increase in /dev/loop0
Do you have any further update on this? What happened after rebooting? Those live resize instructions were added there recently by @psusi so maybe he can comment.
