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 th 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 you computer." If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or 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?
