I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 alongside windows 7. It was working fine but now when I try to boot with ubuntu after the operationg system choice screen I get this enter image description here

Try (hd0,0) : NTFS5: No wubildr

Try (hd0,1) : Extended :

Try (hd0,2): Invalid or null

Try (hd0,3): Invalid or null

Try (hd0,4) : NTFS5: No wubildr

Try (hd0,5) : Extended :

Try (hd0,5) : NTFS5: No wubildr

Try (hd0,6) : Extended :

Try (hd0,5) : FAT32: No WUBILDR

Try (fd0) : Invalid or null

Error: Cannot find GRLDR in all devices. Press ctrl+alt+del to reastart...

And when I press ctrl+alt+del it restarts the computer and if I chose to boot with ubuntu same thing happens again.

But windows works fine.. How do I resolve this problem? Thanks.

Search for the WUBILDR.* files on your Windows 7.

They were located on the Ubuntu folder.

Then copy -not move- the 3 files directly to c:/

and it will work!!

Thanks! That worked great :) –  George D. Dec 8 '13 at 10:14

The method to solve the problem is:

  1. Log on to your Windows operating system.
  2. Click on Windows C Drive and you can see two files named wubildr and wubildr.mbr. These two files have to be replaced by new ones.
  3. Open the drive for Linux in Windows. Open the folder named Ubuntu and look out for wubildr and wubildr.mbr.
  4. Right click on these files separately and click Properties. In the 'Previous Versions' tab, select a previous version and click 'open'. Then copy (Replace) these files to your C drive.

Exactly. . . wubildr and wubildr.mbr are the files that get created on your C:/ drive when you install ubuntu using wubi.

If we tend to remove any of these files there may be an error when booting into windows which says may resemble this:

Try (hd0,0) : NTFS5: No wubildr

Try (hd0,1) : Extended :

Try (hd0,2): Invalid or null

Try (hd0,3): Invalid or null

Try (hd0,4) : NTFS5: No wubildr

Try (hd0,5) : Extended :

Try (hd0,5) : NTFS5: No wubildr

Try (hd0,6) : Extended :

Try (hd0,5) : FAT32: No WUBILDR

Try (fd0) : Invalid or null

Error: Cannot find GRLDR in all devices. Press ctrl+alt+del to reastart...

Solution. . .Log into Windows. You might have installed Ubuntu using Wubi on either C:/ drive or any other drive. Go to "ubuntu" folder in the location where ubuntu is installed. Copy wubildr and wubildr.mbr from this location and paste it in C:/ (not inside any folder).

Now reboot. . .and try booting into Ubuntu. . I'm sure. . it works. . .
