    [ubuntu] Re: Wubi: No root file system is defined.

    Ok. I nuked both of those partitions. Vista still boots fine. However, gparted on the Ubuntu installer CD still can't see any of my existing partitions...

    I'll do another fdisk and post it.

    [ubuntu] Re: Wubi: No root file system is defined.

  11. [ubuntu] Re: Installation: "This computer has no operating systems on it."

    Just for the record, I can access the partitions from Vista's built in partitioning tool. It says all the partitions are there and intact.
