    I still prefer doing most things in a terminal but Ubuntu Tweak makes getting rid of kernels almost idiot-proof and it's hard to say that about anything!

    Re: Wubi megathread

    Hi

    I have a clean install of Windows XP

    I am trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 within Windows

    I have tried installing from wubi

    On boot up I get the option which OS to use

    The windows option works fine

    However when I take Ubuntu option I get a message that it could not find ISO/ubuntu/install/installation

    I have tried pressing "e" and replacing the "quiet splash" with "nomodeset"

    I have run chkdsk/r

    Still no luck

    My apologies if this problem has ben solved elsewhere in the forums but I have spent some time checking threads and cannot find a solution

    I have also tried booting from live CD and installing

    However I only get 2 options...Erase and use entire disc and specify partition manually. I dont have the third option that tutorials say I should have ....install alongside other operating system

    I have also tried installing 10.4 from live CD and again only get the two options as with 10.10 above

    I can get both 10.4 and 10.10 to run if I take the "Try Ubuntu without making changes to your computer"

    Hope you can help. I have been trying for over a week now to get this installed

    PS I am including the boot_info script results

    Re: Wubi megathread

    @Steve Moss, it looks like bootinfoscript is unable to mount your ntfs partition under the nvidia raid. So that's like why the install is failing. I'm not sure what you can do about this.
    Mounting failed:
    mount: unknown filesystem type ''
    Have a read of this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto and see if there's anything in there that makes sense.
    But it may simply be that your raid setup is not supported.

    Steve Moss,
    definitely read the link bcbc posted.

    You could also try a regular install using the Alternate CD (also available on the regular download page for Ubuntu).

    I recommend you go for a 10.04 install, not only because of the long term support, but also because the 10.10 installer has been known to wipe out Windows installs.

    if it's empty... most likely you entered the command wrong and you just created a new grub.cfg somewhere else. Make sure you've loop mounted the root.disk and you're entered the correct path.

    It would help us if you could please do the following:

    Boot the Ubuntu Live CD/USB. Choose the option "Try Ubuntu without any changes." Once the desktop loads come back here and do the following:

    1. Download the boot info script. There is a link in my signature.
    2. Once downloaded, move the boot info script to the desktop.
    3. Open a terminal and run the command

    Code:
    sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh
    This will create a RESULTS.txt file on the desktop. Paste the entire contents of that file back here in a new post. Once pasted highlight all text and click the # sign on the toolbar to place code tags around the text.
