I have the same problem and i get no other error. – jnut Feb 4 '11 at 18:58

which version of windows are you using? i tried to install ubuntu 10.10 as a dual boot on windows 7 and install went fine but got wubi error. i just booted from cd and used install alongside other os option and it worked ok from there.

It seems you have dynamic partition in windows , make it simple ntfs and

put cd and run wubi.exe and follow the instructions and it will oinstal and after booting you get option to swioth either to window or to ubuntu

Are you sure that it says 'No wubir'? In the time I was using wubi, it always said 'No wubildr'. I never had any problems with it, by the way. The screen you see after this message is probably the GRUB bootloader, by the way.
