I think it depends which version you download. "Wubi", which I've
never used, is a windows version that installs into a windows
filesystem. I believe that it's bootable.
I'm using Xubuntu at present (Ubuntu with XFCE desktop), as with the
standard Ubuntu it can be installed to its own filesystem and booted. I
don't have windows on this system except as a virtual box which I run as
an application within Ubuntu. However if you don't need/want windows you
can get rid of it completely.
What's the url for your download?
