Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So here's the problem: After I install Ubuntu 12.10 with the Windows Installer and restart the computer, I get a message saying that the file \ubuntu\winboot\wubildr.mbr has a problem and that the computer can't boot. I can still boot Windows if i turn the computer off then on, but Ubuntu doesn't work.

Some extra info...

 Software: Windows 8, with Ubuntu 12.10 installed alongside.
 Hardware: Dell Inspiron 17r; Intel i7 processor; Nvidia GT 630 graphics card.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

link Actually it looks like there was already a question on this. I'll just try booting without the windows installer then. –  Michael Dec 24 '12 at 22:33
