I installed Wubi on my Windows XP Professional SP3. So when I start the system I get the menu where I select OS to start: Windows or Ubuntu. When I select Ubuntu, I get to a black screen with message

Try (hd0,0): NTFS: error "prefix" is not set

It seems like problem was due to the *.iso wasn't burned on CD. WUBI should be installed from CD apparently.
