Did you hardboot the last time? That can corrupt a file system. If you need to reboot the hard way see the alt+sysrq key combinations in linux.The last time this happened it knocked my NTFS partition in the head
Use terminal 3 (ctrl+alt+f3), you can disregard the broadcom for now. Next time do not press ctrl+alt+backspace but only ctrl+alt+f3. Then you can debug by looking at the logs in /var/log or by using commands such as "ps ax". See what process is currenctly running. You can move across terminals with (ctrl+)alt+f#I did an alt+ctrl+F2 and logged in at the terminal prompt. I then did a directory list. It showed a couple folders. So I then did a cd /media/host and did another directory list. It lists the files there. Shortly after it finished displaying the listing it dumps out a message about my broadcom wireless indicating "Error: Microcode "bcm43xx_microcode5.fw" not available for load failed."
However, the process of the installation was wholly weird. I wonder is there anything else to be copied other that the grldr file?
First, although the "No GRLDR" problem was solved, but I found that the installer didn't detect my language setting when I installed Wubi. I chose Chinese (Traditional) first in the Wubi installer dialog, but in Ubuntu installer there was no choices corresponding to this, and I had to chose English to proceed and complete the installation.
Second, every time I boot with "Ubuntu", I got the error
I've search for similar reports on the forum, but I wonder if this problem has to do with the GRLDR issue, so I mention this here too.Code:[timestamp] hdd: error code: 0x70 sense_key:0x03 asc: 0x11 ascq 0x00 [timestamp] Buffer I/O error on device hdd - logical block 3357322
Third, after those hd and buffer I/O error are passed, during the booting of Ubuntu I also see (not exactly the original messages below):With these three major weird phenomena, my Ubuntu instance is kind of crippled now, because every package I install seems not to take effect, including language support I need, NVIDIA driver... so I stopped trying and am reporting here.Code:Preparing local drives to... /media/host/wubi/disks/usr.virtual.disk No such file or ... /media/host/wubi/disks/extra.virtual.disk No such file or ...
Please instruct me if anything above doesn't have to do with GRLDR issue
Thank you first for all the hard work!
That might be due to a bad hard disk block[timestamp] Buffer I/O error on device hdd - logical block 3357322[/CODE]
You can ignore thatPreparing local drives to...
/media/host/wubi/disks/usr.virtual.disk No such file or ...
/media/host/wubi/disks/extra.virtual.disk No such file or ...
That's strange, do you have r/w access to the filesystem?because every package I install seems not to take effect, including language support I need, NVIDIA driver... so I stopped trying and am reporting here.
I have tried to use the installer but when rebooting to continue I get a screen message stating that the username is incorrect. I cannot use the keyboard and nothing happens.
I used the installer on another computer and therre it says that some file is missing.
Not very good start for me.
I know Ubuntu Christian Edition would like to be included if possible. They use metalinks too and their's is at
