I installed Ubuntu 11.10 through Wubi to a Windows 7 NTFS drive. Everything worked ok -- after I booted into Ubuntu I did all the upgrades and everything was ok and I rebooted etc. However today, after the first cold boot Ubuntu does a kernel panic and I see a purple screen.
Since Wubi uses the Windows Boot Manager I can't set nomodeset or remove quite splash, so I have no way to see whats going on or causing the panic, I just get a purple screen and a flashing caps lock.
Does anyone know what happened and how to fix it?
