My problem is that I am experiencing issues with passwords on Ubuntu installs through Wubi (12.04 LTS x64 and it has happened 4 times) and I'm unable to access the account you set up through Wubi, period.
Here are some things I've tried:
Booting into recovery mode via GRUB. The menu doesn't display, despite holding shift after selecting Ubuntu from the dual boot menu (other option being Win 7 HP).
Ensured that my num lock key was on. My password is a simple set of integers, chosen primarily because Ubuntu has broken before after I chose a stronger password (w/ curly braces and ^, no high ascii chars)
Typing the password on 3 keyboards (on the num pad): an external dell, my laptop's keyboard, and the on-screen keyboard supplied on log in.
Googling for similar situations. Google suggested GRUB, which, as I've said, doesn't work.
Assured that any previous Linux installs on my drive were completely removed.
Does anybody have suggestions? They would be appreciated.
