Wubi, Windows Ubuntu Installer

No root file is defined,dual boot with Windows 7 Ultimate

Asked by KentC on 2012-02-17

Hi everyone,

I installed Windows 7 Ultimate first on my Lenovo B570, then used wubi.exe install with Ubuntu 11.10.

Everyone works normally but after the laptop reboots, it says finishing installation then pops up a message

No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.

At the boot Mgr screen, i do see both Window 7 and Ubuntu as choices,i select Windows 7 and it's fine.

Try Ubuntu and it only works with Demo Mode! I've read we need to tell it the partition is "/"

How do i do this,and how can i run bootscriptinfo.sh,as i tried that using commands and got nowhere!

I need Win7 for work but would like to add Ubuntu as well, any help????

I want to be able to use both of these OS's on my HDD, I'm only using 1 HDD and not sure what else I need to do to fix this problem, I've attempted the boot repair in linux as recommended and that didn't seem to matter!

Need assistance please!!

Please have a look at this link above, I guess bootscriptinfo.sh was given on that from the Boot Repair GUI that I ran.

You have some stray GUID partition table data present:
"GUID Partition Table detected, but does not seem to be used."

This causes the Ubuntu installer to reject the disk. Have a look at fixparts: http://www.rodsbooks.com/fixparts/

Can you help with this problem?
