I recently tried a new installation for ubuntu 9.10 using wubi. Unfortunatelly, it constantly crashed(it didn't start and i suspect there was some sort of problem with grub) and i decided to abandon it. So i uninstalled wubi. After rebooting, grub continues to show the dual-boot options: "Windows XP" and "Ubuntu"!
Windows boots normally and without problems and unitll now i haven't noticed any problem.
when selecting the second option (out of curiosity trying to understand if there is something wrong)I get this message:
(translation form greek)"windows couldn't boot <windowsroot>\system32\hal.dll is corrupted or deleted Install a copy of this file"
Any suggestions on how to remove the "Ubuntu" option or at least repair this file?
In the near future, I will try to install Ubuntu 9.10 manually using a CD, dual-boot with WInXP. Will this problem affect my installation?
