    Wubi fails on Asus K55V

    Hi. I've been trying to install Ubuntu via Wubi on my new Asus K55V laptop. The installation appears to complete fine without errors, but when I then reboot I get this boot screen error:



    The arcane language here is Danish. The "status" code is "0xc0000098". The final line reads something to the effect of: "Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt."

    The file C:\ubuntu\winboot\wubildr.mbr does exist and is 8 KB. There is also a C:\wubildr of 133 KB and a C:\wubildr.mbr of 8 KB.

    Can anyone tell me what might be wrong? Thanks.

    I think that problem is addressed near the beginning of this thread. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1639198

    I tried replacing C:\wubildr with C:\ubuntu\winboot\wubildr as suggested, but no luck

    I would suggest posting on the mega thread with a description of what you have done so far.

    I don't think Wubi works with UEFI: https://bugs.launchpad.net/wubi/+bug/694242/

    I don't know much more about this, but that's what Colin Watson (main developer involved with Wubi) indicates.

    Edit: grub4dos checks the drive MBR partition table to identify the partitions, so if there is no drive MBR then it won't work. So that could be the issue with UEFI with a GPT partition table.

    afeder, please can you post some more info... run a command prompt (cmd.exe) as an administrator and enter diskpart, list disk as shown below... (I just want to see if it's a GPT disk):
    Code:
    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.8400]
    (c) 2012 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
    
    C:\Windows\system32>diskpart
    
    Microsoft DiskPart version 6.2.8400
    
    Copyright (C) 1999-2012 Microsoft Corporation.
    On computer: XPS
    
    DISKPART> list disk
    
      Disk ###  Status         Size     Free     Dyn  Gpt
      --------  -------------  -------  -------  ---  ---
      Disk 0    Online          698 GB    30 GB
    
    DISKPART> exit
    
    Leaving DiskPart...
    
    C:\Windows\system32>
    If it's GPT you might prefer to make a partition and install direct (not with Wubi) to the partition. Wubi is intended to install without partitioning (and it won't make good use even if you create a separate partition for it as it uses a virtual partition that is a single file). (And it's usually simpler partitioning with GPT since it doesn't have the same limits as MBR partition tables)

    While you're in that command prompt, maybe you can output the result of "bcdedit" as well e.g.
    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit

    inherit                 {globalsettings}
    integrityservices       Enable
    default                 {current}
    resumeobject            {1632d04d-ac71-11e1-a566-934e06acdba5}
