April 30th, 2011, 04:54 AM
Hello guys

I just installed ubuntu 11.04 on a separate partition on my hard drive so i can have dual boot for window 7 and ubuntu. I have done this in the past with 10.10 and it use to work fine. But now after installing 11.04 I am not able to boot it. I have recorded a video of what happens. here is the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLr2LqS0cEQ

I have written my laptop spec in the description of the video. Please someone help me out. Thanks in advance.

Select recovery mode from the grub menu, then select failsafeX from the menu to get to the desktop. Once at the desktop, make sure the i915 driver is loaded. To check open a terminal and type:

lsmod | grep i915

Is this a Wubi install? The boot screen suggests this is a Wubi install or are you using a boot manager?

For options at boot time, see here:

yes this is a wubi install... i had window 7 and i installed using wubi. I have dual boot now. I got rid off the i915 problem.. but im still not able to boot. I get that very last error page you see in the videos.

||Confused|| Just a question... Okay, but Part 2 of your video on YouTube shows you running in a Natty graphical api okay ready to browse the web in Firefox 4? Am I lost somewhere with that?
