    Thumbs down Frozen on first boot. No kernel loaded.

    I recently loaded Ubuntu 12.04 on an old laptop that barely worked and after I fixed the wireless adapter problem I decided I loved it, so I attempted to dual boot it on my Asus A52F. It performs the entire Wubi install and asks me to reboot. When I reboot it freezes on the first load page, forcing me to improperly shut down. When I boot again it brings up the grub, I entered boot and it tells me there is no kernel loaded. I've uninstalled and reinstalled 4 times, including running disk checks. How can I fix this? I would love to have Ubuntu on my Asus. Any help is appreciated.

    Wubi install (from withing Windows) has no grub at all. Windows boot-loader remains.

    Did you install Ubuntu through wubi installer , or you did a regular dual-boot from a LiveCD/Usb ?

    Thanks

    I think he means the screen to choose which os to enter. Both should be there just like a regular dual boot.

    It's Wubi. The screen after rebooting says GNU GRUB version 1.99-21ubuntu3.1
    Then has a message Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For th first word, TAB etc; I hit tab and it gives me a list of commands, one of which is boot, which I typed and then it said no loaded kernel.

    This is after selecting Ubuntu in the OS menu.

    Did you try to boot windows yet? Does it work?

    Yes windows works, although once in a previous install it asked me to do a disk check before booting.

    Your Asus A52F seems to be compatible with ubuntu. Maybe you should just create some free space on your HDD and dual boot.

    You probably should use a live cd to make sure it works on this machine before installing. Ubuntu won't actually 'fix' a barely working laptop or a faulty Windows os.

    Actually that PC is having no problems with Ubuntu, it is my Asus - which works great - that I am having trouble with. Would like to go Wubi if possible, since I don't want to risk losing any data.
