Tunic-Install Ubuntu from a running Windows system

If you want to install Ubuntu on your computer, but don’t have a USB drive at hand, an open source tool tunic may help.

Tunic Is a tool that allows you to install Ubuntu or Linux Mint directly on top of or next to your existing Windows installation without booting from external media such as a flash drive or changing BIOS settings.

The software asks all questions first, so there is no need to babysit the installation. It supports Linux Mint, Ubuntu, and most official Ubuntu flavors. Then all processes are automated, download the iso image, install Grub with secure boot support, calculate the Windows equivalent and Linux equivalent of the user account, and finally restart and run the installer.
