View Full Version : [ubuntu] Install Within Windows - boot file not found

April 24th, 2008, 02:24 PM
Hi guys.

I get a "file not found" error after installing ubuntu "within windows".

After installation, I get the boot option of
-Windows XP

Selecting any ubuntu option in GRUB, I get
Error 15: File not found.
press any key to continue which goes back to the boot menu.

I have a C: (Pri) and F: hard drives. I chose to install ubuntu on the F: drive. Wubi installer defaulted to F: since it was the only one with 4GB free.

Windows installtion went fine.
Booting into ubuntu and rest of the installation went fine.
File not found after post-installation reboot.

Everything else looks fine.
I have root.disk and swap.disk in my F:\ubuntu\disks and I have
a wubildr and wubildr.mbr on my C:\

boot.ini contains the following:
[boot loader]
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

Anyone got any ideas?

I had some help on other threads.

GRUB pointed to hd0 in stead of hd1.
