    Welcome to the forums.

    Not many of us know wubi, including me. But I think someone did post that they changed with 12.04. Now you can only download the Windows wubi installer inside Windows and cannot install from liveCD.

    Found it:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PrecisePango.../UbuntuDesktop
    Wubi (the Ubuntu installer for Windows) is not available as an option on the Ubuntu Desktop/DVD any more. Instead, it is now a separate download.

    @daniel42: sorry, I can't help much for encryption. The only thing I know is that you need to decrypt partitions before using Boot-Repair.

    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    Hello all,

    after upgrade from 10 (lucid) to 12.04 in a dual boot laptop: Xp+Ubuntu I couldn't boot.
    I followed instructions at: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair
    where I followed the 2nd option on a live cd of 12.04 and repairing boot with boot-repair.
    Unfortunately, now my pc won't even start (Acer Aspire 3633)!

    During the first reboot I saw the grub menu without a windows entry and when I tried to boot linux there was just a black screen saying something about "autolaunch error: X11 initialization failed".

    Here my reports: before repair http://paste.ubuntu.com/1638744/ and after http://paste.ubuntu.com/1638758/

    any help?

    Following the instructions from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair, I download and boot the live CD (xubuntu 12.10 64bit); install and run boot-repair:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair && sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
    ...and start it. Get the message:

    "Please close all your package managers (Software Center, Update Manager, Synaptic, ...). Then try again."

    But I have no package managers running, so I'm stuck.

    I've seen that a few people have gotten this problem, but haven't seen a solution to it yet.

Grub is running then and shows the option to boot Ubuntu as well, but dies afterwards ("Busy Box, gave up waiting for root device"). As far as I know the preboot authentication is missing. Do you have an advice for this issue?

    This is the report for the enrypted Ubuntu: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1633502/
    After several attempts to install Ubuntu with full disk encryption I checked "use LVM" as well (with SecureBoot beeing disabled). After doing this everything runs fine, without any errors at all (shows correct boot loader, asks for passphrase, booting ubuntu).

    Thanks for your help YannBuntu!

    Grub Problem

    New to Linux, having trouble understanding what to do next with a dual boot system that boots no probs into Windows ... but just gives me the grub prompt when I try to get into Ubuntu?

    After following as many instructions as I can - I'm stuck.

    Followed this - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair

    But after the "Recommended Repair" still no joy -straight back into the grub prompt.

    The URL output by Boot Repair is here:

    http://paste.ubuntu.com/1639293/

    What is the next step?

    @kgeo
    You seem to be booting, so Boot-Repair cannot make any more fixes. But X11 is a video issue. May be best to start your own thread and post what video chip you have. Have you tried nomodeset from grub menu?
    Boot-Repair --> Advanced options --> GRUB options tab --> tick "Add kernel option: nomodeset" --> Apply

    How to set NOMODESET and other kernel boot options in grub2 - both liveCD & first boot, but different

    If you are sure you have closed all other applications, I do not know what to suggest. You can run bootinfoscript which is part of the BootRepair BootInfo report. It just is Boot-Repair gives more info and usually auto repairs.
    Boot Info Script courtesy of forum members meierfra & Gert Hulselmans

    You have wubi. Boot-Report tried to run fsck on root.disk, but reports a zero length file. Did your wubi install get deleted?

    Hi oldfred -- yes I am quite sure nothing else was running. I just boot the live xubuntu 12.10 cd, start a terminal and run the commands as instructed. Willing to help debug if that would help.

    Meanwhile, I downloaded the secure ubuntu remix which has boot-repair already installed and that seemed to work. It reported an error, however, and I still cannot boot. Perhaps you or someone else could help me:
