# Can't boot to Ubuntu after installing it with Wubi

Hi I'm trying to install Ubuntu using Wubi, but when I reboot I press esc for advanced options, selected verbose mode it stops here

My hardware is: Intel dp67bg motherboard, Intel 2600k CPU, and the Windows/Wubi installation is on a GSkill phoenix Pro SSD.

Does any one knows what is going wrong?

Your computer detects a Nvidia graphics card and attempts to load the open-source nouveau drivers, if that is not working for you you need to disable those at boot.

Edit the file \ubuntu\install\wubildr-disk.cfg where you installed Wubi to and open that file with a text editor, look down to the line with quiet splash and in front of splash add nomodeset.

It should read then quiet splash nomodeset.

Save the file and reboot.

It looks like it's having a prob. mounting /dev/sda1. Is this Ubuntu 11.10 or a different flavour: Kubuntu/Mythbuntu? Can you boot a live CD and run the bootinfoscript and attach a link to your post: bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net –  bcbc Jan 28 '12 at 22:28
