Black screen after purple Ubuntu screen
My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?

I did a Wubi "alongside install" from the Windows installer for Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 LTS. After install I get a black screen, when trying to boot Ubuntu. Just a black screen; no purple splash screen and it is only limited to Ubuntu; Windows 7 runs as it always has.

I have Intel HD graphics family listed for display adapters.

Edit: I uninstalled and tried from an image disk and experience the same issue.

Edit 2: Tried this on the off chance it would work. I was able to use it in "try mode" but after install it again went black (intall with updates using the disk through a newly dowloaded Wubi installer that it directed me to). The screen went black again after install (this time with the purple splash screen was visable) hitting the shift at boot did nothing.

There was an error, but it didn't display long enough for me to catch the message.

Edit 3: Apparently this is an conflict with the OS and the Intel Graphics series, as it is not limited to Ubuntu and happens with every distro I have tried (which is all of them with the same exact problem).

Where does one report bugs?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

I don't believe this to be a dupe, as the question you linked back to makes no mention of Wubi what-so-ever. – TheXed Sep 7 '12 at 16:26
It isn't as I looked at that and had no purple splash screen at the time. It is so nice of you to try answering rather than posting the same questions I have already looked at and tried. – Jen Sep 7 '12 at 23:27
