How do you increase the size of the Ubuntu drive above the maximum of 30gb on Wubi?

  1. Ideally I want to increase it to 80gb without the Vista Bootloader being disturbed.
    I know I could do a straight Dual Boot but if I could have the larger drive with Wubi it would be preferable.

    Sorry man, wubi right now just doesn't offer such features.

    Its just meant for a preview for new users to see if they like ubuntu or not without the hassle of installing and data loss.

    If they like it then its assumed that they would install ubuntu on their hard drive cause on wubi, u don't have power management features and nor is it going to work as good as a proper install.

    Its just for giving a preview with the minimum effort possible.

    You can try LVPM:

    It lets you transfer your wubi installation to a dedicated partition. I have no idea if it messes with the Vista bootloader, though, so you might want to look into that

    I know it's unrelated to the question, but bubakup looks pretty useful:
