    How do you know (1) the entry was actually there, and (2) that it has become "lost"?

    Asking because if you're running WinXP, then it's safe to presume there WAS an entry in boot.ini; but if you're running Vista or Win7, there is NO boot.ini -- thus, no entry ever existed.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    i use XP , the entry is gone after i used stupid software to manage the boot
    and it's gone , not there anymore
    currently i have the body of ubuntu there and the files called wubildr.mbr

    but i want to link them both together with this entry
