Wubi broken after hard boot, and update. What is the culprit?
I was in Ubuntu freshly updated 12.?? (wubi install in windows 7)
ubuntu froz... i hard booted and now at start up if i select ubuntu i get :
Try (hd0,0) : NTFS5; No wubildr
Try (hd0,1) : NTFS5: error: "prefix" is not set.
then I am dumped into grub prompt.
I did chkdsk /r from windows
didnt find anything but an error in an old video file.
and windows has done a clean shut down.
same errors occur
In windows both my root.disk and root.swap files are in the ubuntu\disks\ dir.
one thing i notice is that Ubuntu\disks\boot\grub\ is completely empty including hidden files.
un like many installs I installed wubi on a different partition than my windows drive c
Its installed on drive E
What can i try next?
I have been through the following form already ... and some others
Re: Wubi broken after hard boot, and update. What is the culprit?
The \ubuntu\disks\boot\grub directory is always empty - it's an artifact from an older release.
If you've run chkdsk on the drive where you installed, then you probably need to fsck the root.disk and this can only be done from a live CD/USB. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#Ho...on.27t_boot.3F
