View Full Version : [ubuntu] 10.10 won't boot after suddenly losing power

March 26th, 2011, 11:03 PM
I installed Ubuntu 10.10 a while back using Wubi. I have it installed alongside Windows XP. Just yesterday the power went out in my house while I was booted into Ubuntu. When I turned my computer back on I still have the option to select Ubuntu or Windows, but now when I select Ubuntu I get right into a grub prompt. Grub used to give me a list of kernals but now it just sits waiting for commands. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sorry to reply to my own thread. This appears to be a Wubi issue. I found a solution that works for me, but would appreciate any help as explaining why the solution works and/or if this will happen again to me as I'm new to Ubuntu. Thanks again. I apologize if this was in the wrong forum.
