Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install New Wubi Using Installer
Sep 20, 2010
I backed up all my Wubi-files + the boot.ini etc. I reinstalled my Windows OS, then put my Wubi-files on a new partition D: . Put the wubildr.mdr file + wubildr in the C: dir. Changed the boot.ini to C:wubildr.mdr = "Ubuntu" . But when I select Ubuntu in the boot manager I get an error message (Couldn't load Windows, ntoskrnl corrupt - or something).What do I do wrong? Can't I just install a new Wubi using the installer and then replace the disk-file by the old one?
"no need to burn a CD. Just run the installer, enter a password for the new account, and click "Install", go grab a coffee, and when you are back, Ubuntu will be ready for you." that's what it says on the wubi page. I did exactly that, then it asks to reboot which I did, and still no ubuntu. All I have is 3 folders, one icon and one application.
disks install winboot
ubuntu (just an icon, nothing happens when I click on it, just an image pops up) and uninstall-wubi.
I have Ubuntu 7.04 64-bit PC disc but unfortunately it dose not have Wubi Installer. How can I get Wubi Installer and the disc has no space it just contains Ubuntu. I want to install it from windows so that my Files should be intact and along with that I want it to be able to execute my Windows.
I have a second computer now. I succesfully installed the 'Ubuntu 10.04' 5 months ago but I had to unsintall it because apparently I got a virus when in a google search I clicked one video of cryptozoology (won't tell) and the screen went black or something. For the first time that pc frozen 3-4 times, so I was afraid I got a virus.Now I want to install the Ubuntu again but the Wubi windows keeps asking me for my password to continue.Okay, the problem is that I am using the correct pasword but still is asking me to use the correct one.
I ran the Wubi installer for Kubuntu 9.10 from XP on my old IBM Thinkpad T30. After install the system rebooted (complete with grub menu) and the KDE desktop launch successfully, however the task bar and menus are fuzzy, distorted and unreadable when I click them. Do I just need to change my display resolution? How do I do this without being able to see a menu?
I am new to linux world and have shifted from windows to ubuntu recently. I had used Wubi installer and when installing, it had asked for installation size which I specified as 20 gb as i didnt think i would use ubuntu much..but i loved ubuntu.. Is there any way to increase the size that I initially specified or do I have to reinstall the whole OS again??
I wanted to install ubuntu via wubi, but i had to format my partitions (can't do it on wubi ) so i used a crappy program(i don't remember the name) to get rid of Backtrack4 , because i wanted windows kept for my mom.So, that was the sorry, i've ended up with a GRUB error 22, and a Backtrack4 CD stuck in my DVD-rom.So my question is: Can somewone tell me how to fix error 22? (i've seen some methods online, but i obviously can't put a Windows CD in my DVD rom because the Backtrack4 DVD is stuck in there.
What is the easiest and/or safest way to migrate my Wubi 10.04 install to a full install? Currently, my Dell XPS M1530 is currently dual-booting Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Windows Vista Home Premium, and I've decided after using Windows a total of around 4 hours over the past 6 months that I can probably let it go. So, I don't need Windows anymore and I believe I'm ready for a full install of Ubuntu. Though, I probably will wait for 11.04 to come out first.
A few ways I've thought of already are: 1) Find an external hard drive to put the Wubi files on. 2) Upload files to an storage website. 3) Temporarily put the Wubi files onto another computer (Windows). All these meaning I would then wipe my harddrive and install Ubuntu from a CD. And by "files", I mean Documents, Pictures, Downloads, etc.
EDIT: deleting all my applications, because OpenOffice.org won't reinstall on my computer due to dependency issues while attempting to install LibreOffice. So a fresh install would be nice.
I have a quad core box with Windows 7 64 bit installed on it. When I try to install wubi I get an error box immediately after clicking on the exe file that says pyrun.exe at the top of the box and the text says no disk in drive insert disk into drive deviceharddisk2dr2 I have to use the task manager to close that window in order to do anything else. I can't get past this error. I would love to use wubi to put ubuntu on my system.
I have two computers. One has to stay Windows the other is Ubuntu. I had installed Ubuntu as a wubi install on that windows machine. I uninstalled via add/remove programs but the loader is still there. How do I get rid of that? It's not a big issue cause I just set Windows as the first boot whith a 3 second time so it loads right up. Just want to know how.
I'm an experienced Ubuntu user and thus far avoided the need to ask too many questions, but this one's a bit of an odd one.. I want to run 10.04 on my XP pro SP2 box at work so I thought perhaps I could run it via Windows by using Wubi - usually I dual-boot or run independently. However due to several factors this isn't possible in this instance, so rather than intall VMWare and all that palava, I figured Wubi would do the trick. Not used it before tho
The installer starts ok, but once it starts to download the install files it interferes with my network connection to the point where all my connections suddenly drop, and the install fails. I don't know wtf it's actually doing at this stage, because my SSH sessions to other machines seem to persist but I can no longer browse the web, IM loses connection (both MSN and Skype) - which could indicate it's interfering with my DNS? Even after closing the installer I just can't do anything without having to reboot the machine.
I just grabbed the latest installer from the site and ran the install. I'm pretty sure I didn't do anything wrong - but for some reason this clearly does not work on this machine. Am I missing something before I give up and try another tactic? It's turning into an awful lot of effort just to use one piggin' app...
My wife's laptop has XP on it, I installed Ubuntu using wubi apparently. I thought I had made a separate partition and made a true dual boot system but I guess I didn't. Is there a way to clone the wubi install to it's own partition and add the boot loader after or am I going to have to do a fresh install and set everything up again? I am surprised that she has taken to Ubuntu as well as she has, I thought she would hate it but she actually prefers it to windows now..
wanted to install UNR 10.04 proper, dropping WUBI. I figured I'd move my home folder and installed apps from wubi to the regular partition from inside the wubi install, after installing UNR and it's bootloader on a partition.The Wubi install no longer works, trying to boot it hangs at mounting a no longer existant logical partition. That partition used to be ntfs storage, now becoming the proper UNR partition.Wubi's Grub actually says it's not a NTFS partition anymore and hangs there.Would reinstalling Wubi from Windows (keeping the disks folder) solve anything?Is there anything I can do from Wubi Grub's command line?
I understand this is a common problem but i can't seem to find a solution for it other than use gparted to partition your hard drive and install directly to the hard drive.
I am trying to load 10.10 through the wubi installer. I want to install the 64 bit version of ubuntu. My windows OS is 64 bit as well.
I download the wubi online and when i run it i get through the first step of picking how large i want the hard drive and my sudo password. I click next and it goes to download the 10.10 x64 ISO. After about 10 sec a firewall alert comes up and i say allow then right after that the wubi crashes and i get an error log that i will post below saying i dont have permissions. Ive also tried using the right click "run as administrator" option on the wubi from windows 7.
Ive also tried downloading the ubuntu 10.10 x64 desktop iso. i extracted it using winrar then ran the wubi that comes with that and i get the same issue. I find it funny that when your run the wubi from the install disk it still downloads another copy of the iso instead of asking for its location on your hard drive.
I like the concept of the wubi and i had previously installed 10.04 through the wubi and loved it. I had an issue with 10.04 after doing a lot of tweaking and I simply wanted to just remove it and install 10.10 fresh. I'm strictly using ubuntu for experimental and learning purposes so i dont want to install it directly to my hard drive.
i installed ubuntu normally before but due to some problems i uninstalled it. i want to install using wubi this time but cannot install while online. i dont want to install the normal way bcoz the last time i uninstalled it my window cannot boot. so how to install wubi while offline?
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 using Wubi and I am very very happy with it. I want to get rid of Wubi and just have a normal Ubuntu installation. Do I need to do a clean install or is there anyway to switch from wubi to native install. Or backup all my settings and installed apps and import them to a clean install?
I tried installing Ubuntu via the latest Wubi on my HP machine; AMD64 processor, NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE graphics card. After restarting and selecting Ubuntu, my monitor (Viewsonic) told me it had no input, and proceeded to stand itself by. The computer sat there, turned on with no monitor, for about half an hour, and when I came back, windows was up. I tried restarting into Ubuntu again, got to the Grub menu, and selected Ubuntu before the same thing occurred. This time I didn't wait, but hard restarted it after a minute oh waiting. When I tried starting Ubuntu in Safe Graphics mode, I got through the initial bash bootup instructions before this occurred.
i have installed ubuntu using wubi, now i want to delete windows from the computer but how ? the reson i used a wubi install was that i used an old computer who had defect cd room and no option for a USB boot.
I installed ubuntu 10.10 using wubi installer, on win 7 64 bit system. how can I migrate from wubi install to standard install. I want to get rid of issues like free disk space and suspend/hibernate not supported in wubi ubuntu. Will LVPM help. I saw on the page it says that it does not supports wubi 10.04. Not sure what version I have, just installed the latest from ubuntu's site.
Currently, I have a clean install of Windows XP (updated) on my desktop. Previously, I used a clean install of Windows 7, but ran into the same problems below. My U install problems are:
1.) Live CD will not boot upon restarting PC. As per the U documentation web site (URL) , md5sums confirmed that proper .iso copy was downloaded and burned to CD. (However, see log file below for md5 error)
2.) "Installing CD boot helper" does not work. I receive the following error message: "Could not retrieve the required installation files", and it refers to a log file. An excerpt of the log file is below.
I've been using a wubi install of Ubuntu 10.10 for the past few months on my girlfriend's laptop, which has less hardware issues than my more recent laptop. Now that I'm a little more versed in Ubuntu, I'd like to transfer my Wubi install onto an actual partition on my laptop drive for a traditional dual boot.
Is this possible, and if anyone's done this before, would you be able to spare a few minutes and outline the process? I wouldn't know where to start and how to do things since I'm dealing more or less with a file system acting like a partition than an actual one.
I found the steps of migrating a Wubi install to partion via the Wubi Guide, but it seems those are steps for migrating a wubi install to a new partition on the same computer.
