Can't boot into ubuntu after installing wubi


I had Maverick installed and it was running nicely. I decided to upgrade to Natty Narwhal using the update manager. After doing that, Natty Narwhal wouldn't boot. I don't remember what the errors were. I decided to uninstall the wubi installation of Natty Narwhal and start over again. When I tried to install Natty Narwhal, I got the option to boot into Ubuntu, but when I did, I got the following errors:
Try (hd 0,0):NTFS5:no wubildr
Try (hd 0,1):NTFS5:no wubildr
Try (hd 0,2):NTFS5:no wubildr
Try (hd 0,3):invalid or null
Cannot Find GRLDR
Then it goes back to the boot screen.
I'm trying to install with wubi on Windows 7.
The upgrade must have messed something up, but you'd think it would be wiped out after uninstalling.
Oh, yeah, I tried to install Linux Mint with mint4win and got similar errors.
Anything I can do about this?

Never have (nor would) use wubi, but I noticed a recent thread here that referenced this megathread.
Might be worth looking at.
