Ubuntu – Better Way To Install Ubuntu 15.10 Without Making Partitions

15.10dual-bootpartitioningwubi

This is my first post on askubuntu. So, if i break any rules, then please do tell me.

I am using Windows 10, on a 4gb ram,64 bit environment.
Previously when I used to install Ubuntu then I used to install it with wubi. So, I didn't have to make extra partitions or so. But,now as I came to know from some of the post on this forum that wubi is no longer available for installation of ubuntu. Is it even possible to install ubuntu 15.10 in the same way as wubi did, but manually, or any other software.

While using wubi, if ubuntu had problems, I could just simply uninstall ubuntu from the control panel. And nothing else. So, I don't want to make extra partition to install ubuntu.

Steps Tried:
I installed ubuntu 13.10 using wubi. And then upgraded the ubuntu to latest version. After upgrade when it restarted, there was mounting problem,So again had to uninstall. Is there way to solve this mounting.

Any Help/Explaination would be nice.

  • Is there way to solve this mounting.

    See answers of Ubuntu 14.04 not booting after error message. /tmp could not be mounted

    I installed 15.10 with Wubi without any problems. There is no official Wubi solution (besides to remove it from isos) but community supported versions still exist. See solutions of other Wubi users like this one.
