    Error on booting.

    When I try to boot ubuntu with dual boot (win 7 and ubuntu 13.04) the following line appears :
    error: premature end of file /boot/vmlinuz-3.8.9-19-generic
    error: you need to load the kernel first.

    check that you have all the 3.8.9-19 packages installed : 2 headers + 2 images ; and build-essential too

    it should be fine if the generic meta package is installed : linux-image

    Can you boot an older kernel version? From the grub menu you should be able to select an older kernel (unless you uninstalled it). Boot that and then reinstall the 3.8.9-19 packages.

    If it's a new install you have nothing to lose. Check the integrity of the live disk, if it's damaged download it again an try again.
