Hi, I once had Ubuntu installed inside my Windows 7 disk and I wanted to know if I can do that with every other distro. Can I install Slackware / Fedora / Mint inside my Windows 7 without moving any partition?
I currently have 23g of free space in my Windows 7 disk (c:) and 14g in unallocated disk.

Thanks a lot!

You probably installed Ubuntu with WUBI. WUBI is falling out of favour and even Ubuntu are warning against using it - "
Ubuntu Website Warns Windows 8 Users: Don’t Use WUBI" http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/04/wubi-advice

You could run Linux as a VM (Virtual Machine) using something like VirtualBox http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VirtualBox or VMware http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VMware

It is a while (several years?) since I ran Colinux but i think that runs in Windows http://www.colinux.org/
Ah yeah, that's what was confusing me. I remember I had some problems because of WUBI. Thank man, I will try using a VM then
