1) Does XP boot ?
2) With boot on Ubuntu Live CD (option "Try without installation"), can you type:
        sudo parted -l; sudo blkid; more /etc/fstab
3) Do you have data to save on current Ubuntu partition ?

I never used Wubi. I found the following link:
You probably reinstalled Windows XP bootloader, which was modified to add Wubi choice.

Can you help with this problem?
