Ubuntu – How to tell if I installed with wubi

dual-bootwindows 7wubi

It sounds odd, but I really can not remember how I installed my ubuntu.

What I am sure is, I had Windows 7 installed on the laptop in the very beginning, then I installed ubuntu so that this is a dual system 1 year ago.

I need to know if the ubuntu was installed with wubi or not, because it determines how I could resize the partition of ubuntu…

Could anyone help? Thank you very much!

Wubi will show two boot managers. First the Windows one, then GRUB. Plain Ubuntu just GRUB.

Under Ubuntu there is also a /host folder, that will link to the drive where you installed the WUBI image.
