I'd installed ubuntu10.10 in windows7. It was working well but now a days when I choose ubuntu at the start-up of the system it does not found any kernel.

Is there any way how to fix that?

  • Have you upgraded or changed anything before it stopped working?
  • Did you change the default boot partition?

Ubuntu will probably be looking in the wrong partition for the kernel.

I will edit this answer as you respond.

EDIT: This great answer here gives you more info on the WUBI installer. This could be part of the problem. Generally I wouldn't use the WUBI for anything other than to try Ubuntu. Anything goes wrong with your windows partition or install it can usually have serious problems with the Ubuntu install.

I'd not upgraded it. But I just wanted to connect it to another computer for LAN. But that was unsuccessful. After that I properly shut down the computer, but after that ubuntu is not starting. As I mentioned, I'd installed it in windows, it is installed in a separate partition. – Mohammad Faisal Jun 4 '12 at 7:52
