I've installed Ubuntu without creating a swap partition and with
/ on a btrfs.# Now I get the message "Sparse file is not allowed" on each boot. This message appears before the splash-screen. Is there a way to kill this warning?
OK after a bit of rummaging around I found a how-to too get rid of this problem at least temporarily it is fairly simple however I don't have my system set-up with btrfs so I can't confirm this fix.
either comment out or remove this line:

This is the bug on launchpad if you want to add yourself bug #736743
Quoting Colin Watson from the bug report
Hope this helps
I'm running al development branch of Raring Ringtail.
I was reading a Linux Magazine (LXF), which had a few articles about recovering and repairing partitions, files, bootloaders and other stuff.
One of the article writers mentioned a simple tool to be used... Boot-Repair.
