Hi and Welcome,
Wubi doesn't require a partition it installs & runs within Windows. Is it Ubuntu (Wubi) that's asking for a p/w or is it Windows?

In tried to partition my HD using gparted something I am quite familiar with, bur win 7 does not like gparted.\So my next thought was wubi and it or something requires a PW. It showed Allen my name fot ID and I tried everything I ever used for PW with luck.
I want Ubuntu on HD first option, but I need a partition device besides gparted. 2nd option is load it on my 149GB ext3 (USB external) So need someone to take me on that trip. Finally if those fail then Wubi and get pass this PW thing. Can User ID be changed? If so how. Sorry that I did not explain this from get go. Breaking in a new PC as well as a new home and I am bit strung out

I don't understand your problem with GParted, but I prefer EASEUS Partition Master when possible. It runs in Windows.

I don't quite understand your Wubi password issue either. When you install Ubuntu it asks you to provide a user name and password, and the default (suggested) user name is your first name. If you have forgotten what password you gave it at that time just uninstall Wubi (in Control Panel - Programs and Features) and then re-install it.
