I used to have dual system on my laptop windows 7 and ubuntu. when I add a SSD to my laptop I decide to install windows8 and ubuntu in my new SSD. I format the old partions, one for windows 7 and one for ubuntu. Installation for windows8 is good and I use Wubi windows install to install ubuntu like my old way.

First time when I reboot laptop it is fine, but when I reboot laptop again and trying to enter ubuntu system give me an error message below:

[    8.986589] Bluetooth: Can't change to loading configuration err
                                                               [ ok ]

after I enter my password, it shows the log below.

I have no idea what happening. I have try to uninstall wubi, format partion and reinstall ubuntu again (in the windows) but it doesn't work with same error.

I don't know what is wrong, I don't even want use any Bluetooth. Can some one help me? I post the log picture below: log picture

I had the same, then I found hint to remove word "splash" from grub start command line from /boot/grub/grub.cfg, try to remove word "splash" from that file (running for example "try ubuntu" from install iso cd) and restart. It should run as usual. It is something with nvidia drivers. I don't know exactly what, but this solution wors for me.
