    Re: Wubi Error 15

    Here's what I did:

    Boot from live ubuntu 8.04 CD

    Go to 'places' and 'mount ??.? GB hard drive'

    saw "found.000"

    Navigated into the folder. This is what I saw:

    1) Folder: "boot"
    2) Folder: "shared"
    3) "root.disk"
    4) "swap.disk"

    I moved all four of the above files/folders into c:\ubuntu

    I rebooted... and got the same error message I did before:

    find --set-root --ignore-floppies /ubuntu/install/boot/grub/menu.lst

    Error 15: File not found

    Press any key to continue...

    ------------

    Any further help or suggestions appreciated.

    Is there anyway I can simply salvage my files w/in ubuntu and do a clean reinstall?

    Thanks so much,

    K_REY_C

    Solved my own problem:

    Had to create a folder named "disks" into which I placed "root.disk" and the folder "boot" to reflect the advice below.

    Thanks for all of your amazing help.

    No I'm off to shrinking Windows and creating a true partition for ubuntu. Hopefully less problems with that.

    Thanks again all.

    In particular you should end up with:

    c:\ubuntu\disks\root.disk
    c:\ubuntu\disks\boot\grub\menu.lst

    Thank you so much K_REY_C! You made my day, I'm back on linux now.

    I was looking for "found000" instead of "found.000", no wonder I couldn't find it.

    I freaked out so much I was gonna lose my data!

    Anyway thanks again

    This thread was one of my first -- I thought I'd come back to say that this problem w/ windows is what convinced me to switch to GNU/Linux full time. After I rescued my files I installed ubuntu over the entire windows install. I haven't used windows since.
