I use Windows Vista 32bit and have a Wubi install of the 10.10 RC. It worked great, until one day when I upgraded the kernel and rebooted.

Now, whenever I select Ubuntu from the Windows boot menu, the screen goes black for half a second and I am returned to the boot menu. Is there a way to repair this?

Happened to me too and someone else just complained of the same problem. I think this is a general bug of wubi. I think you should now install directly to the hard disk. Since the purpose of wubi is not for long term use but for testing purposes(not totally).

I'd love to repartition the hard drive, but that's not an option in my current environment. – James Jan 17 '11 at 16:09
How about a virtual machine? – William Nov 29 '11 at 2:48
