I installed wubi netbook edition a week back from win xp service pack 2

When I boot into Ubuntu the screen flickers and it reboots.

Now I don't have Windows anymore on my notebook asus L3800.

It just shows:

  • Ubuntu generic
  • Ubuntu recovery
  • Ubuntu netbook

Now which one should I go in to reboot?

I don't want to access Windows anymore in the future.

I don't have any cd to reinstall it as i am comfortable with Ubuntu.

I get 2 boo chain loader:

  • with generic, I get a quiet silence in insmod
  • with netbook, I get instrid

You have to install the full Ubuntu version to work without Windows.

  1. Burn the Ubuntu iso on a USB stick or on a CD/DVD.
  2. Insert the USB/CD/DVD.
  3. Boot from it
  4. Install Ubuntu. Create partitions or remove everything on your computer and install it.
  5. Now it should work.

WUBI is not a full version of Ubuntu, it's a test version.

I hope this helped you,
