I managed to install Ubuntu eventually using the Windows installer. All went well and I got to a point of installing updates etc. Now, however, when I boot, I get an error message saying no such device and the a grub error prompt. I don't even get the option to boot in windows, which I had at first...

Can I get back?

Does this mean I have lost my windows partition and the new ubuntu partition...?

It appears that I have installed Grub and now am unable to access either the windows or ubuntu systems. Can someone tell me either how to get back to where I was or how I can start either operating system?

Admittedly stupid

Hi and welcome to the forums :)

First, please calm down. I understand your concern, but this can be fixed.

See here for Wubi issues and solutions:

problem #1, solution #1 or 2.

If in doubt, post the results of the boot info script.
