View Full Version : [SOLVED] Wubi, 10.10 AMD-64 "no root filesystem"

While trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 (yes, I know it's a few versions behind and not LTS, but I've had minimal problems with it before) on a new computer using Wubi I've had the following happen:

1) Run Windows installer - get the error "pyrun.exe - No Disk There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive". Click Continue repeatedly until the Wubi installer pops up and I install successfully.

2) Reboot computer

3)Choose Ubuntu from the boot menu

After Ubuntu boots, I get the error "no root file system is defined." I know this has been solved many times here, but the consensus seems to be to post the results of Boot Info Script and get help for my specific problems. I'm attaching the RESULTS.txt file from Boot Info Script.

Edit: I'm pasting results.txt into the body of the question as this seems to be standard practice.

Boot Info Script 0.60 from 17 May 2011

Some more info: My current OS is Windows 7 Pro x64. I've also had this problem when trying to install Ubuntu 11.10 and Linux Mint 11 (the newest version of Linux Mint).

When trying to install from the CD (not using Wubi), I've gotten to the Allocate drive space screen and there are no options to install anywhere. I'm assuming this is related and hoping it will help someone guess the problem.

I'm attaching a picture of this screen.

Thanks!

Do you have a fakeraid 0 or 1+0?

If I do, I certainly didn't install it myself. This is a new PC with a 1 TB hard drive. The only partition-related thing I've done is use Windows Disk Management to shrink the 1 TB C:\ drive and make a 100 GB space to install Ubuntu. I later reversed this when I got the second error I described and decided to try Wubi.

I'm including all of the output from Windows System Information -> Storage

You probably have some fakeraid metadata that is confusing ubuntu.
Here's a post you can review - I don't know a lot about this so you'll have to figure out what's right: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=10053893&postcount=17

Thanks! In the end, I did an install to a separate partition and not to Wubi.

Here was the solution:

1) Partition hard drive with Windows Disk Management

2) Boot into Ubuntu with the install CD

3) sudo dmraid -E -r /dev/sda

4) Install Ubuntu

The key was not restarting between steps 3 and 4. Originally, I was trying 2) -> 3) -> reboot, attempt to install with Wubi.

Again, thanks for your help.
