Hi,
I just updated my ubuntu 10.10 installation inside windows (wubi) and after that I shut down my computer. Later on I switched it on again and was unable to boot ubuntu. Ususally I first get the 'Windows boot menu' and after i select ubuntu i get the grub menu. Now, when I select ubuntu in the windows boot menu I dont get grub after that but instead the computer restarts. Is there any way to fix this issue without reinstalling ubuntu

And, in future, do NOT upgrade Wubi versions. Wubi is intended for trial use and not for extended use. The Release Notes for 10.10 clearly indicated that upgrading Wubi is a problem.

Even if you decide to move to a separate installation of 10.10, in future, be sure to read the Release Notes for issues BEFORE you do an upgrade. Can save yourself a lot of grief and problems as a result.
