I am using Ubuntu 11.04 using wubi.

It was working fine till now. When it suddenly gave me a error.

When i select the Ubuntu option in Grub on start up, it opens for a second and the suddenly a Grub CLI opens up.

And when I write boot in the CLI it says

kernel not found.

How can I use Ubuntu 11.04 without loosing any of my data?

Nope gives me an error at search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set be300f9c300f5ab3 –  kritya Sep 9 '11 at 17:39
That search command is setting root to the partition with a specific UUID on a different machine: be300f9c399f5ab3. So it's not going to work on your machine. To use those commands you need to know what partition your root.disk is on, and ignore the search command. However, it's probably not going to work - that's why you're at the grub prompt in the first place. Please output the result of set from the grub prompt. And also search -s -f -n /ubuntu/disks/root.disk followed by echo $root. –  bcbc Sep 9 '11 at 20:17
