    Re: Wubi megathread

    Having had multiples of NTLDR, MBR, GRUB issues, a repair is fairly easy once inside of the Windows environment. Please download MBRFIX from http://www.sysint.no/products/Downlo...S/Default.aspx Scroll down until you see MbrFix. The download link is on the right side of it's container and just looks like text "DOWNLOAD".

    NOTE: Make sure you have administrative rights or are running this binary as the Administrator. You may want to turn off User Account Control in your user settings so you do not get blocked from running it. Sometimes it does it, some times not.

    The archive contains both 32 and 64 bit binaries for the utility and using 64bit over 32bit makes absolutely no difference. I usually place mine in C:\Windows\System32 (Windows bin folder) and that makes it immediately available as a system command;
    Code:
    mbrfix
    There is documentation online here http://www.sysint.no/nedlasting/mbrfix.htm or you can just type
    Code:
    mbrfix
    into a Windows command prompt and you will get this command information output with all the command switches;
    Code:

    C:\Users\Moseley>
    So to fix your first drive, open a command prompt from Start>All Applications>Accessories>Command Prompt and type;
    Code:
    mbrfix /drive 0 fixmbr
    This will correct the master boot record for that drive. I have never had an issue with it, nor any damaging effect, only corrected boot records.
    I hope this helps anyone in need.

    I've been having issues with my sound ever since I installed Wubi onto my Windows 7 machine(laptop). I installed Wubi and for some reason audio can only be heard from the Ubuntu OS and not the Windows 7. Any help here?

    Please mention your computer specs (brand, model, etc. if you know the sound card that as well). I haven't really heard of this problem before, but it won't be specific to a Wubi install so you can search around if anyone else had this problem as well.

    You can also go to the device manager in Windows and check the sound card device, see if it's enabled, can be updated etc.

    Re: Wubi megathread

    I just installed Ubuntu on my computer with Wubi, everything went great. Except; the password and username I set with Wubi do not work. I can't log in with it when i boot up Ubuntu. I can log into a Guest account. But I have no clue what my Root password is. It's not the one i set with Wubi. Has anyone else had this problem, or know how to fix it?

    Re: Wubi megathread

    Yes other people have had this problem. Sometimes it's the result of confusion.

    Wubi is set up to use your "Windows account name" as the presentation name. It still uses the username you provided on the Wubi installation screen under the covers. So make sure you're entering the password that goes with the Wubi username, not the Windows account password.

    If that still doesn't solve your issue, then boot up, select Ubuntu and immediately press and hold the Shift key until the Grub menu appears. Then select "Advanced Options", then the second "Recovery mode", then, "Remount read/write", then "Root prompt", and then you can change your password with:

    Code:
    passwd username
    (Where username is the one you selected for Ubuntu. If you're not sure this will remind you:

    Code:
    ls /home
    Then enter your new password. Then "exit" and "Resume normal boot".

    Great! That's a good plan.

    If it's an external drive that won't always be available, make sure you install the grub bootloader on the separate drive, not your internal. Otherwise, you'll always need the drive plugged in to boot.

    Enjoy!
