Ubuntu :: GRUB Error 22 \ Install Via Wubi, But Had To Format Partitions (can't Do It On Wubi )?

Nov 27, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Grub And Kernel Wubi Inside Windows - "format With No Backup Option"

Mar 30, 2010

I have been using Wubi for a few weeks now and I am really impressed. I have endured a lot of problems with grub and kernel problems etc but now realise that its just the Wubi inside windows! I have it all set up with the cube to perfection and all drivers are running great after a bit of tweaking. So a bit of a lazy question really, can I install it properly onto my drive, and retain all the hard work I have put in setting it up? I have tried, but when it comes to selecting the drive that the Wubi is installed on it just says format with no backup option.

Ubuntu :: Windows Not In GRUB After Install With WUBI?

Jan 11, 2010

So, I converted a Vista user by enticing her with WUBI. She's a computer idiot, and she thinks Linux is great.

HOWEVER, she recently had Ubuntu muck up for her, so she uninstalled WUBI/Ubuntu and reinstalled it (9.10). Upon restart, GRUB presented no boot menu and went straight into Ubuntu. The funny thing is, under the GRUB configuration files, the timeout for the boot menu is set to 10. I tried the following (made sure to change the boot device to hda1,0 since fdisk shows her NTFS as /dev/sdb1):


No luck. No boot menu, no Windows option. I also tried the following:

Manual Windows Entry (with /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober made unexecutable)

#! /bin/sh -e
echo "Adding Windows 43_custom" >&2
menuentry "Windows Vista 43_custom" {
insmod ntfs


Using THIS method, the boot loader did appear, but there was no Windows option. Odd. So, I'm at a blocking point. Yes, I was smart enough to run update-grub Thoughts? My replies may be a bit delayed - she's 2 hours away and I don't have direct access to her computer.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi Install 10.10 X64 - Error

Jan 7, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Delete Wubi Partitions?

Apr 8, 2011

I installed Ubuntu using Wubi alongside Windows 7. There were some updates that screwed things up because I didn't lock some packages and Grub or something get deleted. Anyway that got screwed up so I went into Windows and ran Wubi again. It went fine, someone told me to lock certain packages, so updates what cause issues again.

The problem is when I turn on my computer I have the choices of Windows 7, Ubuntu, Ubuntu. The first Ubuntu that got screwed app still apears there and I believe is still using the 18 gigabytes I allowed.I really like Ubuntu and I would like to install it for real with a my Flash Drive.I understand the instructions but did not do it yet because I don't know how to remove all these previous installations. Here is a link to Gparted and Disk Utility showing paritions:

Ubuntu Installation :: Transfer Wubi Partitions From Windows PC

Apr 23, 2010

I will be getting a new computer soon, and I would like to transfer Wubi partitions from one computer with Windows to another. (The reason I want to transfer the partitions instead of just making a new installation is because I want to keep EVERYTHING intact and all the files/settings/applications/etc the same.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Update GRUB On 10.04 Wubi?

May 12, 2010

I had a bad experience with 9.04 - I installed some recommended system updates, and the updated GRUB killed my installation (which is WUBI), not letting me boot.

I've now installed 10.04, and some updates have come through, one of which is GRUB. So I'm now looking at the "Configuring grub-pc" dialogue box that's popped up, and there's an option to "Continue without installing GRUB?".

What are the risks here? Is my 10.04 WUBI system going to die if I upgrade GRUB again? Or is it going to die if I don't upgrade GRUB?

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 With Wubi - Boots To Grub Prompt

Feb 3, 2010

I installed 9.10 with wubi and lately I had a boot problem with the result is that it boots to a grub prompt. I tried several commands, but no success. I thought I hosed the system. [URL]. Once I copied the new wublidr file over, that did it! Give it a shot, as it works.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Broke After Wubi Upgrade / Sort It?

Aug 18, 2010

I beleive I had version 9.x installed. I upgraded once and everything was fine. I went the upgrade manager again and it found some more upgrades. The upgrade messed with grub. It then told me there were no new upgrades. Then I rebooted and it says

Try (hd0,0): NTFS5

Then the screen clears and there is some text I can't read and then it says command not found. Then it reboots.

Is there a way to fix this?
If not is there a way to recover the files from the disk image file.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi Doesn't Boot - Loads Grub Command Line?

Jan 1, 2010

My Wubi installation of Ubuntu (version 9.10, I think) that I recently installed was working fine at one point, but now it isn['t. I select Ubuntu instead of Windows from the Windows boot loader, but instead of getting the usual menu of different linux versions (I think 2, as I updated it at same point), and Windows, I get the GRUB command prompt instead.I've looked at th2e Wubi Guide (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide), and I've followed the instructions for "How can I access my Wubi install and repair my install if it won't boot?", but that reveals no problems.For the record, I'm fairly new to linux and ubuntu, but I'm good with computers generally. The main operating system on my computer is Windows Vista, but I'm currently typing this from a Live CD of Ubuntu 9.10. The virtual disk (root.disk), is currently mounted as vdisk, as indicated in the Wubi Guide.

Ideally I would like to get Ubuntu to load as it used to (with a menu). However, if there is a way to boot from the GRUB command line that would be good too. I'm not at all familiar with GRUB, and the commands I've tried (boot and linux, I think), get errors saying no kernel specified, or loaded, or something like that.

Ubuntu :: Wubi Update To 10.10 Stuck At Grub Rescue And Cant Locate Impotant Data?

Jan 5, 2011

Dell Inspiron E1405 - 160 GB drive with 2 partitions - I think only 1 partition was used for windows and ubuntu Used wubi to install 10.04 - both XPP and 10.04 worked fine after repairing the XP install My boyfriend used Referencer (.reflib) in Ubuntu 10.04 to organize and tag about 900 documents. He spent around 9 hours on the project and its VERY IMPORTANT. I am a dumb ***, forgot the project was on the computer and updated to 10.10 via update manager without it backing up. Now I cant boot to XPP or Ubuntu - "error: no such device:", "grub rescue" My main concern is getting the data back. I would rather uninstall WUBI and install Ubuntu on the 2nd partition (wish I would have done this in the first place but 10.04 was my first Ubuntu install and I didn't know any better). I have to get this data back! I have tried the following and cant locate the referencer (.reflib) file or the .docs and .jpgs booted to USB using my 10.10 netbook remix USB install USB stick - I can see the windows files pulled the HD out and connected it to my Ubuntu netbook, an XPH and W7 computers -cant locate data

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi Gets Error: No Disk In The Drive

Oct 11, 2010

At the Ubuntu.ork front page, it promises:


This Windows installer (Wubi) will help you to run Ubuntu within your current system.

What exactly is meant my this? Does this mean it is an easier way to install the dual boot with Windows? (I am using Windows-7 on a new PC.) Or does it mean it will install Ubuntu under Windows? I assumed it meant the latter.

In any case, I downloaded it - a mere 1024K, scanned it and ran it. I get a stubborn error box with the message:


There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive

[Cancel] [Try Again] [Continue]

And that box will not go away - no matter what I press, including the [X] button in the upper corner, the box reappears. I had to go into Process Explorer to kill pyrun.exe and its parent, pyl5E39.tmp.exe before the [Cancel] button would close it for good.

I could not find doc on this so I don't know what it really wants as a prerequisite to running wubi.

Ubuntu Installation :: Restore Wubi After Windows Reinstall - Error: No Such Disk

Jul 4, 2011

I decided it was time to reinstall Windows 7 because it became increasingly slow. I know that there's a different solution to solve this problem, but as a user I'm just more satisfied with the noob friendliness of Windows. However, I know that it has its drawbacks so I had a dual boot setup with Wubi (30GB). My old configuration was as follows:

C: partition of size ~80GB with Windows 7 x64 installed
D: partition of size ~400GB with data and a wubi ubuntu at D:/ubuntu

So what I did was this:

- Backup all my personal files and D:/ubuntu on a external hdd
- Wipe the partitions using the windows installer
- Create a C: of 100GB and a D: of 380GB
- install windows 7 x64 on the C: partition

Now I would like to restore my backup of the old D:/ubuntu to a working dual boot system. I realize I may have missed some opportunities and the data may be gone, but I only found out about that when it was too late. I have tried installing wubi, and replacing the new ubuntu folder with the old one, but this did not work.

error: no such device: 9054698454696DC2
error: no such disk

I have also tried replacing only the root.disk file, with the same result. I searched for other people's solutions, but they did not seem to work in my case.
