    Thank you bcbc very much. Now...how can I get my windows boot loader back because I can only see my Win 7 and not my Vista. Please advise.

    Thank you very much again for the quick response.
    You're welcome! Did you sort out booting Vista and 7? When you install a new windows OS over an old one, it combines the boot files... so I suspect that you just need to select the "Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda1)" entry and then you should get the Windows boot manager with your two windows entries and the old Wubi Ubuntu.

    You should probably hold your horses... until you figure this out. If you get rid of Vista you'll probably be removing your win 7 boot files. As I explained before, windows combines the boot files of newer and older installs - and it always places them on the older install. So delete it, and your new one won't boot.

    no problem we can get the /bootmgr /Boot/BCD into the W7 so it boots on it own.

    It just needs the boot flag on the W7 partition and the W7 recovery booted to the command terminal and
    bootrec.exe /fixboot

    bcbc,

    You wrote:

    Confirm the UUID, fstab and resume settings match, then update initial ram disk:
    the last two lines of my fstab file read:
    Code:
    UUID=b610e25d-4073-487b-abc3-db17a16dea91    /    ext4    errors=remount-ro    0    1
    #UUID=89a1b68b-20dd-4897-b826-92ba8adeb48d    none    swap    sw    0    0
    so I should first uncomment the last line and then update the initial ram disk?

    When you say
    Code:
    Confirm the UUID, fstab and resume settings match
    do you mean the UUID setting in the fstab and resume files? Or is there a third file I need to check as well?

    (Sorry for the delay in res[ponding to your help -- I somehow missed the email alert...)

    Yes... I meant you should confirm what the UUID of the swap was and then make sure the entries in fstab and resume matched it. So if that's the correct UUID then uncomment it, then check it right away:
    Code:
    sudo swapon -a
    free
    
    #and then
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    And then you might as well hibernate and see how that goes. If you have any issues hibernating, check the syslog for errors with the prefix PM:
    Code:
    grep 'PM:' /var/log/syslog

    Re: HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition

    OK, I uncommended that line and saved it. Then I ran the code to update ram, and got:

    Code:
    bwbloch@ubuntu:~$ $ sudo blkid /dev/sda7
    $: command not found
    bwbloch@ubuntu:~$ /dev/sda7: UUID="89a1b68b-20dd-4897-b826-92ba8adeb48d" TYPE="swap"
    bash: /dev/sda7:: No such file or directory
    bwbloch@ubuntu:~$ 
    bwbloch@ubuntu:~$ $ cat /etc/fstab | grep swap
    $: command not found
    bwbloch@ubuntu:~$ UUID=89a1b68b-20dd-4897-b826-92ba8adeb48d none            swap    sw              0       0
    No command 'none' found, did you mean:
     Command 'nona' from package 'hugin-tools' (universe)
     Command 'one' from package 'opennebula' (universe)
     Command 'note' from package 'note' (universe)
     Command 'cone' from package 'cone' (universe)
     Command 'node' from package 'node' (universe)
    none: command not found
    bwbloch@ubuntu:~$ 
    bwbloch@ubuntu:~$ $ cat /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume
    $: command not found
    bwbloch@ubuntu:~$ RESUME=UUID=89a1b68b-20dd-4897-b826-92ba8adeb48d
    what am I doing wrong?
