Ubuntu installed by Wubi works fine on first boot. However, on later boots, it gets stuck at grub command line. I can input. I can choose to exit and boot windows 7.

What should I do?

Do you mean when you cold boot everything is fine but when you warm boot (e.g. reboot) there is an error ? – snayob Sep 4 '12 at 16:28
Probably the root.disk is being corrupted. Hard shutdowns likely the cause. Add more info about what is happening between 'first boot' and 'later' – bcbc Sep 5 '12 at 3:33

It should be a bug in thw Wubi installer. try to defrag. your hdd and see what happends after that. it should proberly help :)

This is on a higher level, and a defrag may not help... But thanks for giving an answer! – hexafraction Sep 4 '12 at 19:17
