I used the
System Restore in my Windows to fix a certain problem and thereafter recognized that my dual-booting machine's OS Ubuntu 12.04 LTE is not working!
Ubuntu was installed in my machine using
wubi.exe and unfortunately it resides in the same hard disk partition of Windows 7.
I was surprised to see that the folders
unp305710732022077260.mdmp under the installation directory of Ubuntu shows 'Crash Dump file'!.
I think that's why Ubuntu normal start-up screen is not working, GNU Grub appears.
I tried a number of things:
I restarted the machine several times
I inserted the contents of hidden folder
found0000 under Ubuntu installation directory and placed them under /disk folder of Ubuntu renaming them as
Once again I was taken aback when i saw that the previous
root.disk named file showed size 0 B!
I typed a number of things on the Ubuntu GNU Grub screen but all in vain as was never able to at least come out of that
grub> command of black screen and go somewhere else.
Nothing worked for me. It's still the same. I cannot even uninstall Ubuntu and reinstall as my Ubuntu OS has
Hive installed in it.
Uninstalling will totally remove all such installations and redoing all of them would just be a nightmare! Is there any way-out ? Please help.
