Vista breaks Ubuntu

Bug #68354 reported by Stalker on 2006-10-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

When Vista is installed (or was installed, only is boot loader "required" for bug to appear) anywhere on any of the HDDs any Ubuntu install (including Kubuntu, Edubuntu and so on) will fail on "Mounting filesystem" stage. This does not happen with LiveCD or when XP was installed after Vista overriding Vista's boot loader.

So this is failing during booting? (after being installed)

Try to edit the command line options of the kernel in grub, and remove "quiet" and the one referrring to "usplash". Then please try to take a picture of the screen or copy the last lines that appear (as many as possible!)

Sadly, I am unable to do this because I have XP reinstalled to override Vista's boot loader. And I really don't want to have to go through the process of installing Vista (yuck) or changing my mobo (somehow this makes Vista's boot loader appear from the depths of nowhere and override XP's one).
