View Full Version : [ubuntu] New Install receives "Error 1:"

March 31st, 2009, 03:42 AM
I am new to Linux and am using Wubi to install Ubuntu via Windows so I can see if I like it.

I successfully loaded the Wubi/Ubuntu install, and was prompted to reboot the computer. I did so and received the following error message:

"Error 1: Filename must be either an absolute pathname or blocklist"

I could strike any key to continue, and was allowed to choose a number of modes (regular, demo, etc), but each of them resulted in the same error.

Can anyone help me out?
