    Ubuntu Startup Failure

    I am using Windows XP Home and after using Wubi to install Ubuntu, I am experiencing problems starting Ubuntu. When I boot up after the Ubuntu splash screen, the following error occurs:

    Fsck died with exit 8

    File system check failed,

    and later in the command lines it asks me to manually type, "apt-get install apt" (but it fails). What can I do to solve this problem and use Ubuntu successfully?

    That's usually due to a hard reboot that has corrupted the filesystem. At the moment wubi does not tolerate hard reboots too well. You can recover the data but it's probably easier to reinstall
