Comment 113 for bug 642518

well i reinstalled vista (although i hate it, i need it for some programs)
i used wubi and another partition, done one update on ubuntu lucid 10.4,
didnt change the sources other then proposed, and on the second reboot the
fglrx / ati work fine

not sure if its because windows being done first (this worked twice now
prior to bug) but it seems fixed. last time removing windows destroyed the
system.

none the less thanks and im impressed the time you guys took to respond
regardless of the fix not working for me
