Help, I've just carried out an update and when I rebooted it won't let me passed the choose screen with Windows 7 or Ubuntu on it, I choose the Ubuntu and Error: unknown command - load font flashes for a second and then the machine reboots!

I can't get any further into Ubuntu than that, any one have any ideas of how I can get back in????

I suspect it is a Wubi install. If yes, please refer to problem # 2 here.


Don't forget to apply permanent fix from that page once you are done.

If Windows is still booting normally then I think sikander3786 has given you the correct evaluation of the problem.

Don't forget to apply the Permanent Fix once back in Ubuntu, including locking the grub packages to prevent this happening again.

If you need more help, let us know please.
