For those of you with Wubi problems, here's how to mount your root.disk, and recover your files using a LiveCD: Boot your computer, enter your BIOS by pressing the key it tells you to press at the first splash screen you come to at startup, put the CD/DVD drive first in the boot sequence, insert your LiveCD, then save the changes, and exit your BIOS. Your computer should now boot from the CD. In the Ubuntu setup program, select the preferred language you use, then select the "Try Ubuntu with No Change To My Computer" option. Once at the Ubuntu desktop, in a Live session, open up Applications->Accessories>Terminal. Now run: Code: sudo fdisk -l sudo mkdir /win sudo mount /dev/sdxy /win sudo mkdir /vdisk sudo mount -o loop /win/ubuntu/disks/root.disk /vdisk where the "x" and the "y" in "sdxy" is replaced with the correct HDD letter (starting at a of course), and the correct partition number (starting at 1), of the Windows partition your Wubi install is on. The first command will have given you the location. Once running those commands, open up Places>Computer>Filesystem>vdisk, and you should find the contents of your root.disk in there. Now you can backup your data to external media, and reinstall Ubuntu with Wubi if you like. You can also try running the Code: sudo fsck /win/ubuntu/disks/root.disk command to fix any filesystem errors that may be interfering with the boot, if that's the problem. Hope it helps.
