    Re: Wubi megathread

    There may not be Wubi testing for 12.10 for a quite a while. Alpha 1 won't be released until June 7 . After that you may be able to try an upgrade or you could try something like the method at the link when there is an Alpha ISO released.

    Or do what everyone does at this stage. Install 12.04, modify your sources.list and run a dist-upgrade. See the second post in this thread for an example (although it refers to upgrading from oneiric to precise): http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1970289

    If you're planning to run quantal you should review the stickies in the ubuntu+1 subforum and be prepared for it to break. Also review the warnings on partial upgrades.

    My suggestion is to keep a working copy of your root.disk (so you can quickly replace it if your current one breaks). You can use the wubi resize script to make a copy (and you can keep it synchronized with the --resume option): https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...licateWubiDisk
    (the --resume option is not advertised there, but it can resume an interrupted copy, and also quickly synchronize an existing copy of the root.disk).

    Hi everyone,

    Here is my BootInfoScript result file. I had Windows Vista installed and I just installed Wubi with Ubuntu 12.04. I then went on a live CD to expand my C: partition size (which contains both Windows Vista and Wubi installs) with my partition D: which contained nothing... but everything crashed from now, I cant boot on Vista nor Ubuntu (Im on my live CD)... I tried a few things here but nothing works atm. I tried fixing the MBR with a Windows XP cd since I don<t have any Vista CDs here... Is there a way to fix things up? Could anyone help me out please?

    Thank you,

    Lun471k2

    Vista should have it's own disk manager for expanding a partition to absorb free space. How did you do it on the live CD?
    You probably need to get a Windows Vista Repair CD. You can download an image from neosmart for about $10

    Re: Wubi megathread

    To be honest, your solution is to remove Kubuntu & Wubi and either create a dual boot setup or a LiveUSB stick that you can boot from and run Kubuntu. The reason is here:

    Warning

    There is a critical issue on Wubi 10.04.2 and 10.10 installs caused by allowingthe Update Manager to update the grub-pc and/or grub-common packages.

    Please avoid updating these packages on these releases until this notice is removed. If you have already run these updates and need help or would like more information, please see the Wubi Megathread on Ubuntu Forums

    These problems can be avoided on a fresh install by locking the grub-pc and grub-common packages. See the main post (just after the Permanent Fix section) in the Wubi Megathread linked to above for more on how to do this.


    Locking the kernel is, IMO, not a valid option if you want the improvements a new kernel brings. I ran into this problem. A couple weeks after I installed Kubuntu 10.4 on a Win7 box the kernel was updated, causing the "update-grub" command to be executed. After that, I could no longer access my Kubuntu OS. So, I did the following:

    When you boot your PC, hold down the SHIFT key until the Grub menu comes up. Select the Windows OS and boot into it. From the Windows Control panel's "add & remove programs" remove Kubuntu. IF that doesn't work there is a section in that link on "Uninstallation", which describes other methods.

    Re: Wubi megathread

    Hello there!

    I am trying to fix some problems with my Ubuntu Wubi installation that may have got lost after I installed Windows 7.
    While trying to figure out what happened, some users told me to post in the Megathread as the problem was rather complex.

    The thread that I have explained my problem is this:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...1#post11944286

    and my boot info script results are below. Please if someone knows their way around Wubi please answer my thread.

    Thank you for your help.

    Re: Wubi megathread

    sotstas, you can access your data in the following ways:

    1. from the live CD
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /media/win
    sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/win
    sudo mount -o loop /media/win/ubuntu/disks/root.disk /mnt
    nautilus /mnt
    2. from windows using http://ext2read.blogspot.ca/ (download the tool, and point it at the root.disk)

    You shouldn't have installed grub to /dev/sdb. Wubi doesn't boot like that. If you'd installed it to /dev/sda then your computer wouldn't boot windows anymore. Wubi boots via an entry in the windows boot manager, that calls grub4dos (wubildr.mbr).

    I'll post again with some options on getting your wubi booting again.

    sotstas,
    It's possible to manually add an entry to the windows boot manager to call the wubildr.mbr and this will get Wubi booting again. Here's a post on that - which I haven't tried, but it appears reasonable, even if you have to use both easybcd and bcdedit (bcdedit should be all you need): http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/20340...tu-bootloader/

    Or you could let Wubi do it for you. First get your current ubuntu install out of the way so you can reinstall.
    1. rename \ubuntu to \ubuntureal
    2. reinstall the same release of Ubuntu to the same 'drive' (pick the smallest install size - 5GB - as you're going to throw this away).
    3. before rebooting, switch \ubuntureal back to \ubuntu
    (basically you're getting wubi to put in the boot entry as well as the uninstall info in Control panel and the registry - which allows you to uninstall easily later as well.)
