Ubuntu (Wubi installed) won't start on boot-up

Asked by Bryce Carter on 2012-11-19

I downloaded the windows installer and installed Ubuntu onto my SSD. I rebooted my PC and tried starting up Ubuntu, but it said a file (ubuntu\winboot\wubildr.mdr) was corrupted or something. Is there any way to fix this, or do I have to uninstall and reinstall? I really don't want to reinstall because my internet is very slow and will take at least 3 hours to download all of it. But, if I have to, I am willing to.

No.. How do I do that?

Its the scandisk in Windows, makes sure the file system is correct and error free....

Wubi doesn't work on computers with UEFI (using GPT disks). Is that what you have?

Can you help with this problem?
