Bug Description

ISSUE:
Currently wubi doesn't work on UEFI based machines. Most installs of windows are now on window7 or 10 and wubi does not behave the same way as it does on XP.

XP:
In xp the autorun pops up a menu and from there you can read the docs on the current release reboot or install via wubi, this happened for usb drives and cds/dvd.

Win7>:
On Windows 7 and on you get a popup asking what to do, if you select run autorun it will eventually throw up the install from wubi option this is not at all desirable. From usb sticks it doesn't even offer that, instead it says I need to format the driver or only reads from the EFI partition as it is in fat file format.

RECOMMENDATION:
Remove wubi from the image it no longer serves it's purpose.
