View Full Version : [ubuntu] WUBI Install hangs upon restart...

Hey all,

A roomie of mine saw my ubuntu system and thought it was quite slick. So of course he wanted it as well lol. So i set him up a wubi install he over his 32 bit Vista. everything seems to go fine until the reboot. the splash screen (where the bar goes back and forth) it freezes and thats it... if you press any key it goes for a bit longer and then stops. and stays that way. Having already done this on three computers without problems im confused. I have tried both 32 and 64 bit architectures (specs of his box to follow) and i get the same result with both.

Now, he has a HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook with 3Gb ram AMD turion 64 X2 TL-60 2.00GHz processor.

why this has a 64 bit processor and 32 bit vista on it is beyond me... it aint the first time ive seen it tho lol.

So if anyone has any ideas why this aint working id really appreciate it

Thanks in advance!
