Users who wish to run Wubi from a USB disk that has persistent storage enabled will need to run it with the --force-wubi option from the Windows command line.
Original report follows:
The current kne size is +700 mb plus the default minimum persistence of 128mb and the install inside windows option is missing from the menu. However by switching off persistence this drops the iso size and install inside windows option becomes available again.
I believe this is to do with the option in wubi for max_iso_size (but could be horribly wrong)
