    Wubi Not Starting after Installation

    I have installed the lastest Wubi 8.04 on my system which already contains Vista Home Japanese on C Drive and Vista Ultimate English on E Drive. My Wubi is installed on D drive which was empty before installing Wubi. I installed Wubi from my Vista Ultimate English.

    Wubi installed successfully and asked me to reboot, when i rebooted my pc , and selected uBuntu from boot menu, the Beautiful uBuntu Loading window appeared after which a dos window appeared and performed several commands checking my hardware may be. But then it stuck at this command
    "Starting Common Unix Printing System: cupsd"

    what to do know , uBuntu is not working for me ???

    If you have USB peripherals like printers attached remove them then try again

    Re: Wubi Not Starting after Installation

    I am using only USB mouse which i had already removed, also i turned off my Wifi Connection but still having problems starting uBuntu

    I then booted into Windows Vista and used this Solution

    edit c:\ubuntu\disks\boot\grub\menu.lst
    2. replace "quiet splash" with "all_generic_ide"
    3. reboot
    4. Ubuntu Install!


    Now when i rebooted my pc, i m getting different errors each time i restart my PC , sometimes its giving me devd-event[1609] and sometimes other errors.

    Any Solutions, i m using Toshiba Laptop???
