After updating Ubuntu to the latest version 12.04 I found Ubuntu corrupted after two days. I tried uninstalling but it wouldn't and gave me errors. I uninstalled using Revo uninstaller. Now I am unable to install. I understand that the problem could be an Ubuntu header during boot which still shows but is of no use. How do I remove the header? Any solutions?

u said that u uninstalled ubuntu with revo uninstaller. does that mean that u installed ubuntu using wubi? –  blade19899 May 30 '12 at 13:57
    
You are right. Sorry. Did not share complete information. Installed Ubuntu using Wubi 2 years back. Upgraded to 12.04 2 weeks back. It got corrupted and was of no use. I tried to uninstall Wubi. Was giving error and not uninstalling. Used Revo Uninstaller to forcefully uninstall it. Now the header is there and Wubi doesn't install Ubuntu. Stops at some point and stays there. Please help. I love Ubuntu. –  Melroy Boniface Mascarenhas May 31 '12 at 14:51

Register(name en email) to Download EasyBCD. When installed(at the top of my head)

go to boot entry's en remove the Linux boot entry, click save and that should fix it.

if I understood you right then your grub is messed up.

Cleanup the older headers and images could be helpful :
