Want to uninstall Ubuntu 12.04, then reinstall as an application under Windows 7
 
Hi everybody,

I have a laptop with an AMD64 running Win7, dual boot, Ubuntu 12.04.
I would like to uninstall Ubuntu, re-establish the original boot sequence, and then install Ubuntu as an application under Win7. Is that possible? Is it easy? Do I ask too much? :) Thanks in advance.

P.S. I have read the similar threads, and none seems to apply.

1. Boot from your Windows 7 DVD
2. Start the recovery shell and launch the command
Code:

bootrec.exe /fixmbr
3. Now reboot the system, start Windows partition manager to remove the Linux partitions, grow the Windows partition into the free space
4. Instal Ubuntu using the Wubi installer
