It looks like your Wubi installation is broken (see sda1/Wubi section). I would check the downloaded image of Wubi and reinstall it. –  arrange Sep 8 '11 at 8:40

You seem to have a bogus/broken GPT. Unless you are supposed to be using GPT, then you should remove the bogus GPT and just use the standard msdos partition table. You should be able to use gdisk for this.
