    Error booting Ubuntu (Dual boot system) wubi

    Hi. I've got a dual-boot system with XP and Ubuntu 12.10 (with Ubuntu installed through the windows installer). I've encountered an error than can be seen here:

    I did what was suggested and ran 'chkdsk /r' in windows and rebooted, but it didn't help. Can anyone offer some advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    Added wubi to your title.

    Not many of us know wubi as it is just a file inside Windows for for a longer term test of whether you like Ubuntu or not.

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wubi

    Are you installing from inside Windows or liveCd?

    wubi only installs as direct download in Windows, not from CD with 12.04

    From the developer of wubi:
    http://howsoftwareisbuilt.com/2009/0...o-wubi-ubuntu/
    Agostino: Wubi actually wasn’t designed to do long-term installations. The main aim was really to let people try out Ubuntu with confidence. Normally, users that start with Wubi tend to upgrade to a full installation to a dedicated partition at the next release cycle.

    Yeah I used to have Ubuntu installed on its own partition. I guess I'll go back to that.

    Thanks.
