XP pro on sda1
Ubuntu 9.10 on sdb1 Wubi
First of all, Thank you to whomever can get me out of this mess!
I was trying to do a sbackup of my Ubuntu 9.10 since I had it all set-up the way I wanted it. Since I'm new to Linux, perhaps I stopped sbackup before it was finished because I could not see anything happening for a while and thought it was done. When I rebooted it gave me the " Install problem! The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly, etc.
Here's what I have to do now to get Ubuntu to start:
sh:grub> linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31-14-generic root=/dev/sda2 loop=/ubuntu/disks/root.disk ro
sh:grub> initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.31-14-generic
After this I get a black desktop with a blue log in window. When I log in I get the GNOME Power Manager error message.
So I tried Failsafe GNOME and got a black desktop with only a mouse cursor that I could move around.
KDE and Xterm all came up with the original error message.
Can this problem be fixed from the sh:grub>
OR, do I use my live Ubuntu CD?
BTW, I saved a copy of my Ubuntu folder with the disks.
Here's my Ubuntu location:
