Ok today I downloaded the latest version of ubuntu extracted it with winrar and ran wubi which installed linux. Then at the end of the installation I restarted my computer when I select ubuntu in the boot manager here is what comes up:

Try (hd0,0): FAT16: no GRLDR
Try (hd0,1): NTFS5: 3
Try (hd0,2): invalid or null
Try (hd0,3): invalid or null
Try (fd0): invalid or null
Error: cannot find GRLDR in all drive. CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart.


Ok so my computer is an hp with windows vista premium 512mb of ram 160gb hardrive. I am not a super genius with computer I know that basic, I just need to know how to fix it because I have tried ubuntu before and it was FANTASTIC very great.
If it helps here are some screen pictures.

Here is what my computer looks like:

Hi and the post has been moved to wubi to better support. The second thread was merged because of two threads on the same issue. Now I have lock the third thread on the same issue. You can just bump your original thread for more assistants.
I believe the issue is that you are extracting the iso with win rar. Have you tried to download the ISO and burn like the links have been provided. Then you may able to install as the Wubi site instructs.
