  1. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    Bcbc, still here messing with window partitions...
    After the fix you kindly suggested it worked out, but I still have 40GB of unallocated space left. Now I want to partition that free space BUT,...
  2. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    Ok, I've done it again. Everything ok :) Thank you.
    I was wondering... now it's installed in sda3, what happens If I format sda3 from primary to extended, creating also logical partitions? Will it...
  3. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    Ok so I'll repeat the procedure you posted here
  4. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    I've resized the restored root.disk with lvpm. Now it works again without grub... should I still have to reinstall it?
  5. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    So it's better to let lvpm do all itself... Well the space is available so it's no problem, I think I'm gonna choose 12GB...
    But after this resize I'll do again that sudo apt-get install grub-pc?
  6. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    Ok, but since the problem of the size is still there, I'd need to resize the wubi partition with lvpm... Would it mess everything up again?
  7. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    Hey it worked thank you!!!
    Now I have to do also sudo nano /etc/fstab ? why? where, in terminal or when?
  8. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    So I go straight with that command that autoremoves lvpm?
    If prompted any device I just press ok or what?
  9. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    When I do sudo apt-get install grub-pc I get this, and not an empty line:

    Shall I click yes??
  10. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    Ok, so I'm gonna try this solution, but just to be clear the only root.disk that I have now is the old 6GB one, I overwrote the one created with the new installation with the old backup one,and this...
  11. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    Ok, but I already know that I still need a larger root.disk, there are only 236mb left... So I'll need to resize it for sure... Can I still do it?
  12. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    Ok I'll try this... but don't you think that trying to resize again that root.disk with lvpm would fix this mess?
  13. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    I clicked on lvpm 2 times, once on transfer and it gave me all the partitions, and another time to resize and it prompted for the new size. Both times I didn't click ok and I didn't proceed.

    Oh, I...
  14. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    Thank you bcbc for your effort.
    1) installed ubuntu 10.04 with wubi directly since the first time on C
    2) used for some time and got all the upgrades
    3) needed to move it, still in virtual disk,...
  15. [wubi] Re: Help, I can't restore a root.disk after reinstalling wubi

    Well I installed wubi on c (sda3), I got all the upgrade of modules, packages and kernel. After all these upgrades the space wasn't enough so I wanted to resize the partition, but I could not create...

    But how can the old wubi bootloader point to new migrated partition? Does this script edit the wubi loader?
