I'm unable to fully boot into Ubuntu 11.04 on a system that dual boots XP. XP is working and was installed first. Details below:
After having problems upgrading a previously working but old Ubuntu v9.10 installation I decided the easiest thing to do was probably just uninstall Ubuntu and do a fresh install of the latest version.
Here's what I did:
- Uninstall Ubuntu from the Add / Remove programs in Windows XP.
- Remove the C:\wubildr.mbr = "Ubuntu" line from the boot.ini.
- Reboot Windows XP and confirm the old Ubuntu files are gone and Windows has reclaimed the file space.
- Download and install the latest Ubuntu Windows installer (wubi.exe).
- Install Ubuntu using wubi to the same disk as last time, though this time I allocated 10 GB instead of 30 GB.
- The install seemed to go well and I was prompted to reboot to finish installing.
- Selected Ubuntu at the beginning of the boot and Ubuntu seemed to be completing the install.
That's when I received the following error:
Verifying the installation configuration No root file system defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu
I'm unable to get beyond this error. Every time I click "Ok" the error is displayed again.
Any suggestions of how to troubleshoot this problem are greatly appreciated.
I have run boot_info_script.sh by booting Ubuntu from a Live CD. Would it be helpful if I pasted the result here? Is there a particular section of the results I should post?
