What do you mean "inside of Windows"?

Like on a VM? If so; what virtualization software did you use? VMWare? VirtualBox?

Or did you use Wubi?

You could check the Ubuntu forums link below which has an explanation. I've never used wubi so have no idea how or if it will work:

Did you look at the link MichaelK posted?

There is a section on expanding disk size - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#Ho...rtual_disks.3F
