    Re: Formating Virtual Drive

    All, can you please let me know:

    1) file system of the installation
    2) HD type/raid/anything peculiar
    3) How long did you wait at 33% (try to wait 10-20 minutes)
    4) Virtual disk sizes (in windows AND in linux, press Alt+F2 to get a shell and browse the /host/wubi/disks folder)
    5) Any message visible in Alt+F4
    6) Is the wubi folder compressed/fragmented?

    There are also a couple of tricks to regenerate the disk images I'd like you to try. Uninstall Wubi, run wubi installer, do NOT reboot. Try one of the methods below to generate the disk images (5GB example below).

    1. get http://www.kessels.com/JkDefrag/JkDefrag-3.8.zip , unzip and run: jkdefrag c:\wubi
    2. Open a dos shell and run: fsutil file createnew C:\wubi\disks\system.virtual.dis 5000000000
    3. Run a program like qemu-img (http://www.h6.dion.ne.jp/~kazuw/qemu....0-windows.zip) to regenerate the disk images inside c:\wubi\disks. The command is: qemu-img create c:\wubi\disks\system.virtual.disk 4G
    4. Cut and paste the C:\wubi\disks folder to another partition, and then cut and paste it back to C:\wubi. Do this before rebooting.
    5. If you have a large movie file (or any other file for what matters, except ISO and other virtual disks) of 3+GB, copy it on top of c:\wubi\disks\system.virtual.disk
    6. Simple reinstallation keeping the drives the same size as before
    7. Uninstalling and reinstalling with all drives <= 4GB


    Reboot and go on with the installation.

    Let me know if any of the above works. That should hopefully help me track down the issue.

    Re: Formating Virtual Drive

    Last night it got stuck at 33% so I left it like that for about an hour.


    I had a 6gb System, 3 gb home, and .5gb swap.

    I know it's a bit boring, but when you have some time can you try to answer the points above?

    Okay, sorry.


    1) file system of the installation
    2) HD type/raid/anything peculiar
    3) How long did you wait at 33% (try to wait 10-20 minutes)
    4) Virtual disk sizes (in windows AND in linux, press Alt+F2 to get a shell and browse the /host/wubi/disks folder)
    5) Any message visible in Alt+F4
    6) Is the wubi folder compressed/fragmented?

    1)My harddrive is NTFS, so I guess it's that.
    2)I don't know. Just a normal harddive for a notebook PC (HP Pavilion)
    3)I started it around 10:55 and stopped it around 12:05
    4)6GB System, 3 GB Home, .5gb root
    5)Hmm, I forget it just gave some progress info I think.
    6)It shouldn't be. I defragmented my harddive the night before.

    Re: Formating Virtual Drive

    Hi,

    I am new to Ubuntu and to this forum but I have been following this thread with interest after downloading test2 and having the same problem (hanging at 33%). I tried loads of the things mentioned here and have had success by changing the virtual drive size to 4GB. Just wanted to share.....

    Total size of 4gb or just the system size?

    Re: Formating Virtual Drive

    So far I had a few success report from people reducing the size <= 4GB. That is not necessarily due to size change, it could simply be due to the fact that you are reinstalling. Did anybody try methods A-E with drives larger AND smaller than 4GB? That would help a lot.
