I have an Asus 1015cx netbook with Atom dual core, 1GB RAM. I installed Ubuntu 12.04 with WUBI inside Windows 7 and everything was okay.

But when I installed additional drivers of Broadcom and Cedar Trail, the netbook does not boot after restart. There appears a blank screen and cursor keeps blinking. The same problem happened with Xubuntu 12.04.

Please suggest.

what wast the last message? Did recovery shows any error message? Do you have any graphics card? – shantanu Sep 8 '12 at 11:25

it's difficult to recover "inside windows" installed system. Also you can not access root shell. So recommend you to backup your system and go for fresh install. – shantanu Sep 8 '12 at 18:26
