    bcbc,

    I got this:

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mkdir /media/win
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/win
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ ls /media/win/ubuntu/disks/root.disk

    ls: cannot access /media/win/ubuntu/disks/root.disk: Input/output error

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount -o loop /media/win/ubuntu/disks/root.disk /mnt

    /media/win/ubuntu/disks/root.disk: Input/output error

    Well, I defragmented the hard drive, and I still got that weird message and extremely long boot time. Any other suggestions?

    No, it doesn't look good. I hope that chkdsk recovers it. I don't know what else to suggest.

    You can copy wubildr to the root of /dev/sda1. Then wubildr.mbr will find it quicker. But it's a bit of a manual workaround. It shouldn't hurt anything with wubi, even if you forget to remove it later, but you might want to make a note to remove it in case you install another version of Ubuntu and there is a conflict.

    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
    cp /host/wubildr /mnt/wubildr
    sudo umount /mnt

    I tried to switch to a more reliable and efficient operating system, a Linux based one such as Ubuntu. I won't lie, I liked it while it worked. In the end though, I now realize that Ubuntu ain't as "perfect" as many people would think. The word HYPE comes to mind...

    I'm going back to Windows now. I can always count on System Restore whenever things go wrong.

    Thanks for all the help bcbc.

    Sayonara!

    It won't hurt anything in Windows 7 either? I need to make sure that Windows still works. How would I remove it when it is time to upgrade? Thanks.

    No Windows won't care.

    To remove it:
    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
    rm /mnt/wubildr
    sudo umount /mnt
    At some point - when you are comfortable that you want to be using Ubuntu on an ongoing basis - you should probably consider switching to a full install. Wubi is great to try out Ubuntu without having to partition, but the intention of Wubi is that it will lead users to do a full install eventually. So once you start having to do these manual workarounds you can weigh the effort of partitioning etc...

    See HOWTO: migrate wubi install to partition
