|Hello. Today when I found out wubi is a gigantic disaster I decided to get rid of it and get a real Ubuntu installation. These are the specs before everything went to s---:|
Windows 8 x64 dual booting w/ wubi Ubuntu 12.10 x64 by Windows boot loader
So this is what basically happened:
Installed Ubuntu 12.10 x64 from flash drive livecd (where I am atm), configured it etc
Grub working to boot Ubuntu and Windows 8/wubi
Copied important files I had on wubi inst back to W8
Tried running wubi-uninstall.exe -fail
Tried removing by appwiz -fail
Got ownership of the wubi partition (success), then tried the above again -fail
Tried this* and also failed (which is probably the causer of all this)
Only then tried this** which is what actually "worked"
What Gparted tells me http://oi47.tinypic.com/hsnx1w.jpg
Gparted says ubuntu part is using only 6gb so thats probably screwed, then theres that weird unknown fs
New Ubuntu install doesn`t have much in it, but formatting W8 isn`t an option.
So what can I do now?
just copied to wubi folder and ran it
bcdedit /delete <GUID from wubi partition>
delete wubi partition
