I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my packard bell dots notebook about 10 days ago downloading wubi from the Ubuntu site. It has worked excellently since then (except flash player problem which no amount of adobe downloads fixes). today it won't boot : when I choose Ubuntu over Windows I get
GNU Grub Version 1.99-21 Ubuntu3.7 Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word TAB list possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions. grub>
so I press TAB and get
Possible commands are: [ authenticate background-color background-image badram boot break clear cofigfile continue cutmem echo export extract-entries-configfile extract-entries-source initrd imsmod linux loadfront loopback is LSfont menuentry normal normal-exit probe return search search.file search.fs-lable search.fs-uuid set setparams shift source submenu terminal-input terminal-output test unset grub>
I am not technical at all and feel overwhelmed. I would happily try to download Wubi again, but fear I will lose my excel and word worksheets.
Please could someone help. Thank you
