I am having issues with trying to install Ubuntu through Windows, I can download either installer fine and they run okay, however as I soon as I try to boot up Ubuntu I get the 0xc0000098 error.
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 do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance. File: \ubuntu\winboot\wubildr.mbr Status: 0xc0000098 Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.
It is not missing as when I check the folder it is there and have tried replacing it with the otherwise located ones directly and by changing the path name.
I follow these steps to try and resolve the matter but to no avail. Whenever I run the repair it always finds the same issue with fwbootmbr and will not fix it.
Is there a way I can do this manually from the command prompt?
I am running an Acer Travelmate on Windows 7 pro.
I can always get my laptop back to a healthy Windows 7 version, but cannot get a healthy system with Windows 7 as default and Ubuntu installed in Windows 7 using Wubi.
I also happen to have a Dell Inspiron running Windows 7 Home Premium which works fine with the Wubi installer so I am really at my wits end trying to figure out what to do next. Reinstalling Windows 7 and then all the drivers is long and time-consuming, and I'd really like to get this resolved so I can get on with a programming assignment.
