The current WUBI.EXE isn't packaged with the 10.10 Meerkat?
Looks like 10.04.
Windows Installer launch error message
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2011
I want to download and install Ubuntu to run alongside Windows 7 in a dual boot configuration. I went to this page:
.....and downloaded the Windows Installer, but when I try to launch it I get an error message which I captured and attached to this post. What's really wierd is that once the message is displayed, I can't get rid of it. Even running the Task Manager to try to close the message doesn't work. I literally have to restart the computer to get rid of the message!
Am I suppose to be downloading the Windows Installer (Wubi) to a CD first where I run it from there? If so, the instructions don't mention that. Can't I download it directly to my C: drive and then run it from there? If so, why am I getting the error message? Thanks!
Screen shut down after "try ubuntu", maybe UEFI problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 17, 2014
So I'm trying to create an USB bootable Ubuntu to have the possibility to work on the same environment but on 2 differents computers. I tryed Ubuntu 13.10 and 13.04 on a 32Gb USB key installed with Unebootin and Universal-USB-Installer.
When I restart my computer (an HP ENVY 17 on windows 8) i switch to an ubuntu grub and when i select "try ubuntu" the screen turn off but the computer is still on. I tried the USB with Ubuntu 13.10 installed with Universal-USB-Installer on my other computer that i made myself (it have an Asus motherboard). Here in the boot mode i can select :
-USB Hard Drive (UEFI) - Lexar JumpDrive
-USB Hard Drive - Lexar JumpDrive
When i select the UEFI one it's the same as on my HP but when i select the one without UEFI it launch Ubuntu. The problem is that on my HP i can't select the one without UEFI, it doesn't appear inthe list.
An other question is, is it a good solution for what I search : a full working Ubuntu OS on an USB key to work on many computer
Unable to boot Windows <UEFI> using grub even after bootrepair
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 11, 2014
As mentioned in the Ubuntu community, I tried Ubuntu 13.04 64bit , and went ahead with the installation after making sure that the live session was loaded without ay issues. But after the installation I was not able to boot windows (I could do that by changing the boot option in BIOS , to boot from Windows boot loader). So, as described in the community, I went with the Boot-Repair.
The URL i got was http://paste.ubuntu.com/6722678/
Please help me out. Thanks in advance.
[bootrepair] How to get back windows 8 uefi boot files
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 24, 2013
I had working dual-boot with Windows 8 and Ubuntu (11.10 I think), then I upgraded ubuntu to 12.04 and 12.10 and ubuntu removed itself from efi boot options. So I ran boot repair, first time I used automatical repair and it didn't seem to do anything (http://paste.ubuntu.com/5796475/). Then I ran it again using advanced settings, but I think I didn't actually change anything that wasn't already checked, and ubuntu removed windows 8 boot files and replaced it with it's own, so now the "Windows" option in efi loads grub. I guess it does keep a copy, but I'm not sure which one is it, could anyone help me restore it? Pastebin: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5796504/
Also, I later upgraded ubuntu to 13.04 and it sucessfuly made it's own entry (so now I can load both Windows and ubuntu options to get into grub...), this is unrelated, but it might help as I noticed it's not only me that has ubuntu installed but no option in efi boot order.
Windows installer of 12.04, (initramfs) on boot, repairboot, kernal panic error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 18, 2014
New laptop with Win7, ran Windows Installer to upload 12.04 - ran well, no issues. Rebooted laptop and checked windows booted successful, it did. Rebooted, selected ubuntu - got black screen with two lines of (initramfs).
Could press any key to get around it. Rebooted.
Using the live USB I had previously downloaded, ran through the terminal the boot-repair instructions. All ran reasonably successfully until the end - got an error of some kind but didn't note it because the prompt that the repair was successful was also displayed. http://paste.ubuntu.com/6773220/
Now windows still boots successfully but still ubuntu doesn't - gives the following error on a black screen
[36.680293] Kernal panic - not syncing: Attempting to kill init! exitcode = 0x00000100
[36.680342] drm_kms_helper: panic occurred, switching back to text console
Again, only rebooting the system would get me back to windows.
What the heck??? Kernal panic. Panic occurred. It's all a bit melodramatic.
Ubuntu/Windows network & remote desktop probs??
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 21, 2009
Pretty new to Ubuntu. Finding it great but can't get remote desktop or file sharing
happening properly between my (wired) Ubuntu & Windows machines. Hoping someone can help me??
I can file share from Ubuntu, viewing & copying files from and to Windows, but from the Windows computer I can't see a connection at all.
I got the remote desktop working, in order to use my Windows machine thru this one, but for no apparent reason, it's not working now & says 'connection closed' in the remote desktop viewer. When I got it working, I tested it by restarting the Windows machine a couple of times & found it still worked. I think it was when I shut down this Ubuntu machine that I couldn't get it to work again, so thinking the prob is with this one.
I need the remote desktop because I occasionally need a Windows program, but only have one screen, keyboard, etc.
I'm gathering the required software - samba server, VNC etc are all right, as it's worked for me a couple of times
ubuntu/windows 8 dual boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 23, 2013
I haven't been able to get into windows 8 since I successfully installed ubuntu. I love ubuntu but I still need windows 8, at least for the time being.
The partition for windows still exists. It very obviously a boot issue. It appears system32/winload.exe is missing or damaged. Can anyone please help me troubleshoot this.I am a total noob when it comes to OS issues, boot issues, and ubuntu particularly. any help is appreciated.
I ran boot repair and this was what the report looks like:
Boot Info Script e7fc706 + Boot-Repair extra info [Boot-Info 6Nov2013]

LikewiseOpen. Ubuntu. Windows Domain. Headaches.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 2, 2011
I thought this was easy? Anyway, I'm trying to add an Ubuntu system to our Windows domain at work. A few things came about.
First, I found a bug report that told me why I was not able to join the Windows domain. I had to edit /etc/nsswitch.conf and edit out the line regarding "hosts: files mdns4_minimal...." and reboot. Once done, I was able to join.
Okay, fine. But now I'm trying to LEAVE the domain, and it's giving me an error. So I shut off the lsassd service and bam, I could leave.
Okay, so now I want to rejoin. See what I'm doing here? I'm trying to repeatedly test this to see how it fairs. Well I go to rejoin and I get DNS_ERROR_BAD_PACKET.
Be blunt with me. Am I wasting my time using Ubuntu in an enterprise environment with a Windows domain?
kubuntu live usb boots up to ubuntu text installer (no kde desktop)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 3, 2011
hi, i am using unetbootin to create a live-usb of this iso: freemed-live-0.1-i386.iso (i think it is based on kubuntu). when i turn on my netbook with the usb plugged in i get about 6 menu items (default, live, live expert, linux, ...) but no matter which i select it takes me to some ubuntu text install where it is asking me to select language and keyboard layout.
is there a way make it boot to the live desktop ?
