    Question "no loaded kernal" error message


    This is my first post on these forums so hi everyone

    Now on to my problem. I am trying to dual boot ubuntu with windows 7.

    Now when I choose to boot ubuntu I am greeted by Grub and when I use the boot command I get the error message "no loaded kernel."

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi and Welcome !

    Where did you install Ubuntu? In a separate partition or inside Windows OS?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thanks for the replies but I am going to be starting again as I have realised using wubi does not create a proper dual boot which is what I am after so will be starting again. No doubt these forums will be hearing back from me when I encounter another problem

    Good Luck for next install ! Make sure to create free space for Linux before starting Hard disk installation of Ubuntu.

    If you want to install a version of Ubuntu, you can get the appropriate iso file from here:

    Hi you probably know this but just in case, I found it was easier if windows is installed first. I'm new to Linux as well and one thing that will help is once you get Linux installed create a system image or even better is to find an application like commodo time machine but one that works with Linux because I am pretty sure that it only works on windows. because I found that you can really stuff things up if you do the wrong thing. I found out the hard way. Using Linux may be a bit frustrating at first as it is totally different to windows but the more you use it the more you will like it. It is definitely worth putting the effort in. Good Luck

    This may be a stupid question but do I need to extract the "ubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64.iso" file? Or do I burn the image onto a cd how it is?
