    You need to restore the windows bootloader to /dev/sdb for a start. grub should not be installed in either that or /dev/sda for a wubi install.

    You can ether use a windows repair cd to fix this (command fixmbr) or you can install an equivalent bootloader from the live CD.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lilo
    sudo lilo -M /dev/sdb mbr
    sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr
    lilo used in this way works just like windows - it boots the partition marked active. You don't need it on /dev/sda, but you don't need grub there either - so the last line is optional.

    This won't fix the ubuntu. It seems like there it has been corrupted. The wubi guide has some instructions e.g. run chkdsk on windows, and try running fsck on the root.disk. It's worth a shot, but in the meantime let's see if windows will boot.

    Re: Problem while boating: NO such device....grup rescue

    Please could you post back the version of wubi you installed - was it 10.04?
    Did you run normal system updates or were you upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04?
    Did you get a prompt asking you where to install grub and did you select /dev/sda and /dev/sdb if this is the case?
    Is there anything else you might have done that was unusual or was this simply an normal update that silently did this?

    This information will help others who encounter the same problem. Thanks

    Re: Problem while boating: NO such device....grup rescue

    First of all thanks bcbc repairing windows boot loader works well

    the wubi version is the version used within the ubuntu CD downloaded from ubuntu website

    Ubuntu version 10.0.4

    The update required is the update required by ubuntu after installation actually I don't remember if it asked or not as Iam new to ubuntu and I used to accept and click ok with windows not good thing to do that but windows works in a way like that

    Great that it's working. Thanks for the feedback.

    If you can recall, did you see something like this:

    Configuring grub-pc

    GRUB Install Devices:

    [] /dev/sda/

    [] /dev/sdb/

    'The Grub boot loader was previously installed to a disk that is no longer present or whose normally unique indentifier was changed for some reason. It is important to make sure that the installed grub stays in sync with other components such as the grub-cfg or with newer linux images it will have to load, and so you should check again, to make sure that GRUB is installed to the appropriate boot devices.

    If you are unsure which drive is designated as boot drive, by your bios, it is often a good idea to install GRUB to all of them.

    Note: It is possible to install GRUB to partition boot records as well, and some appropriate partitions are offered here. However, this forces GRUB to use the blocklist mechanism, which makes it less reliable, and therefore not recommended.'
    It would have been a very noticeable large window popup during the update process and hard not to notice.
