I have a laptop that has Windows 7 64-bit as the main OS. I originally installed Ubuntu 10.10 using Wubi so I could have Windows and Linux to choose from at boot up. All worked great up until yesterday when I tried to install Ubuntu 11.04 using Wubi.
Now after the install when I rebooted the Windows boot manager has the option to choose Windows or Ubuntu, when I choose Ubuntu this is what it says:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer. 2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next". 3. Click "Repair your computer " If you don't have this disc, contact your system administrator it computer manufacturer for assistance. File: \ubuntu\winboot\wubildr.mbr Status: 0xc000000e Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.
I can boot into Windows just fine from the bootloader menu. I tried to uninstall Wubi, deleted the files associated with Wubi, then tried to do a side by side install of Ubuntu 11.04 using a downloaded ISO from Ubuntu's website. I burned it to a disc and booted the CD and did the install that way.
Still I got the same error screen as listed above.
Any ideas as to how I can fix GRUB or add GRUB to my boot up menu so I can boot into Ubuntu 11.04?
