Hey buddy, yep I wubi, and now only Vista boots, I cant find Ubuntu Ibex 1.0, at first my Mainboard screen came up and asked me which OS I wanted to boot into, then it stopped that, and now Quickly boots into Vista. Thanks for the attention.
Which Ubuntu file did you download? Iso, Wubi, or other?
Where did you want to install it? In Windows, dual boot, or other?
If you wanted it installed in Windows, is this what you downloaded? See link.

Thanks buddy, no, no power failure, I got a blocked program screen, didnt know what to do with that, then I powered down. So the next time I boot Vista comes up fast again, so fast I cant press Del to get to Bios or anything. I must fix this in Vista somehow. I dont have a Linux CD. Alan UPDATE: I used msconfig to check gui box in startup and I hope I fixed the problem! Vista demands Priority, You must whip it into shape to make it act as told!
One "gotcha" of installing in Windows is Ubuntu doesn't do well in a power failure--hard shut down. Do you think that
is what happened?
Do you have Ubuntu on a CD?

Thanks Buddy: I will go to the site you suggested, Yes, Uninstall is easier, I love Ibex I want to keep it,forever!
Here is a link to one of my favorite sites. See the info in paragraph #9.
If you have the ISO file that you used to install Ubuntu, you might want to burn it to a CD. Info on how to do that is
in the link above, also.
You can order a free CD of 8.10. In my experience, it takes about 3 weeks for delivery stateside.
You might also consider installing Ubuntu as a dual boot in its own partition as it would be more stable, faster to use. The only reason I can see for installing in Windows using WUBI is it is slightly simpler and easier to uninstall.
