How to install Mint 8 Gloria Using Mint4Win/Wubi

Postby saiftheboss7 » Mon Nov 30, 2009 3:25 am

I have been using Mint quite Regularly using the mint4win...
Last day i downloaded Mint 8 Gloria...
Then i surprised to see there is no windows installer inside.. :o

So now i ask you all that

Is it possible to install Linux Mint 8 using Wubi (I Downloaded Wubi from wubi-installer.org/)
If there is anyway plzz Tell me... :?:

Wubi/Mint4win is not included with Mint 8 because it is incompatible with GRUB2:

I think, if we can remove grub2 from mint 8, we can add Wubi to it. Is there some way to remove grub2 and add Wubi to LiveCD ISO?

Hi! I upgraded a mint4win mint7 to mint 8 and it's working just fine now :D but this might just be my good luck and I'm sure it's not advised.
Why don't you backup your data and try?
