I'm truly sorry if this has been asked and answered - I did search and could not find it. I'm running lucid with wubi on a pc with vista. (stop that laughing ;))
When the Windows boot screen comes up and I select Ubuntu, my computer goes back to the HP splash screen and seems to start the booting process over. It then gives me the select screen again, and as long as I select Ubuntu rather than Vista, it keeps recycling. The only thing I can think of that might possibly have caused it is that I deleted 2 old kernels yesterday, but...
Any help greatly appreciated and I apologize for my newbieness!

Hi and welcome to the forums :)

Is Windows booting normally?

For Wubi issues and solutions, see here:

You have problem #2, probably needs solution #1

Don't forget to apply the Permanent Fix back in Ubuntu.

Thank you! I'm not at my computer, but that definitely seems to be the problem. Windows does boot normally, so I'll try problem #2 solution #1.
Thanks! :)
