Sorry for my bad English.

I am unable to use Ubuntu/Lubuntu after a fresh installation. Few seconds after boot the system is turned read-only.

Previous searches indicates a bug with wubi in 14.04 ubuntu version, or a hard drive problem. After change my HD, I get the same error.

I already tried: Change ro to rw during boot and run 'sudo update-grud' after boot. Run fsck (In my older and new HD, an it does not found any error).

I would like to know if there is some type of solution for this situation, because I was using 14.04 (32-bit) with no problem, and now I need to use a 64 bits version.

So did you actually use WUBI or not? – the_Seppi Aug 30 '14 at 15:57
I'm not using wubi. – Franklin Soares Aug 30 '14 at 20:36

Problem not solved. Maybe my HD is really damaged. I'm using Windows in this 'problematic' HD (with no problems until now). Back to Ubuntu when I change the HD.
