So I've been doing a wubi config for a while, and figured I'd go for a full installation.

I look up a guide, it tells me I should use a program (unetbootin?) to create a new partition
I follow the steps.

The program ends up messing up my boot.ini somehow (I get boot.ini message on bootup)

I restore it to the generic boot.ini, but now, I'm unable to boot back into my linux?

Is there any way I could fix this?

I can't help you on this matter through personal knowledge but here are two links which may be helpful to you in terms of technical knowledge.

1st) Go here: http://www.answers.com/topic/wubi-ubuntu?m...;initiator=CANS

2nd) Go here: http://www.answers.com/topic/unetbootin?initiator=CANS

The first link is a comprehensive article on wubi

the second link is a comprehensive article on UNetbootin

Hope this helps until someone more knowledgable comes along
