I got a problem with installing ubuntu with the help of wubi. My configuration is a laptop with single hdd, Windows XP SP3 and my user account with admin rights. Wubi version is rev245.
I can manually change the file boot.ini (and I already removed the read-only flag) but wubi always crashes with the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "\lib\wubi\application.py", line 58, in run File "\lib\wubi\application.py", line 132, in select_task File "\lib\wubi\application.py", line 158, in run_installer File "\lib\wubi\backends\common\tasklist.py", line 197, in __call__ File "\lib\wubi\backends\win32\backend.py", line 606, in modify_bootini File "\lib\wubi\backends\common\utils.py", line 239, in write_file IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 'C:\\boot.ini'
I added the following line manually
but I am stuck with a grub shell bootloader that doesn't recognize any kernels (as these files weren't copied).
Is there a switch to tell wubi to proceed even if it can't access boot.ini perhaps?
Thank you for your help!
