I am using Wubi to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my windows partition, then I decided to migrate the Wubi install to a partition. I followed the steps on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MigrateWubi, it was done correctly and I'm happy of the result.
The problem now is, my windows doesn't show up in boot loader - which means, I can't boot into windows. How do I resolve this?
I have two hard drives both of 500GB. I have windows 7 on it and the other one has two partitions one with 450gb and the other with 50gb. On the 50gb I installed the consumer preview of windows 8. I want to get rid of Windows 8 and install Ubuntu there instead.
I'm trying to dual boot ubuntu 12.10 alongside windows 8. I tried to use wubi windows installer to install ubuntu. Now when I restart my laptop it reports some problem with "File: \ubuntu\winboot\wubildr.mbr". However i'm still able to login to windows 8 but not ubuntu.
