View Full Version : [wubi] "Windows has failed to start error" when trying to start Wubi

March 13th, 2013, 10:48 AM
I am running Windows 7 64-bit and trying to dual boot with Ubuntu using Wubi.
Whenever I attempt to start Ubuntu which I installed using Wubi, I get a "Windows has failed to start message"
I know there are countless threads already for this issue, but I've had no luck finding any solutions that worked for me.

wubildr and wubildr.mbr are both in C:\ and in the correct installation location (in my case D:\ubuntu\winboot)
I have tried reinstalling multiple times, I have also tried redownloading wubi.

I have had Ubuntu successfully installed with Wubi previously with no problems whatsoever, but ever since I formatted my hard drive I've had this problem every time I've tried.
