I have Ubuntu-11.10-desktop-i386.iso and wanted to install it within Windows. I found out the Ubuntu recognized my wireless device without even installing any drivers, which i didn't see in Linux Mint 15, so i plan to install this Ubuntu-11.10-desktop-i386 within Windows and update it quickly and make a backup of this Ubuntu. Is it possible to do so? since this will be installed within Windows. Any suggestions are welcome.
The Ubuntu installation is stored on a virtual disk on the windows file system. From the windows point of view the virtual disk containing the Linux install is just another file. So the easiest way is probably to make a backup from the windows side. Locate the file and copy it to a external medium. It probably resides in the folder C:\Ubuntu\disks.
