Install Ubuntu without Partitioning your Hard Disk
You can install Ubuntu without partitioning your hard disk by installing this simple software called Wubi. You can download it from the official Ubuntu website. It’s a tiny software (less than 3MB) and take a few seconds to install. The best part is it’s completely free.
- Next place Wubi and the downloaded Ubuntu IOS in a folder (imp: both in same folder)
- Start Wubi by doublclicking on it
- Follow the step by step process
That’s all, Ubuntu is now installed on your computer as an application on Windows. Therefore you didn’t have to partition your HDD. You may now restart your PC to boot into Ubuntu.
