What will happen to the Ubuntu in this situation?

The Windows is Windows 7.

Thank you.

    Do you mean you have a Wubi install of Ubuntu? – Oli Sep 4 '13 at 15:31

If you did a Wubi install of Ubuntu, Ubuntu is installed inside the Windows partition.

If you wipe that Windows partition (eg, by formatting it), you will also delete Ubuntu.

  • what if the Ubuntu is installed in another partition, not the Windows 7 partition which is in C:/? Will I able to boot the Ubuntu through GRUB? – user190076 Sep 4 '13 at 16:12
  • What you're describing there sounds like a real install (dual boot). In that case it would be okay to remove Windows but reinstalling Windows would wipe out Grub. This can be fixed quite easily with a LiveCD. – Oli Sep 4 '13 at 16:36
