Ubuntu 14.04 won’t load after upgrade or Upgrade WUBI Ubuntu from 12.04 to 14.04 —

I’ve just upgraded from 12.04 to 14.04 on my WUBI installation.
The upgrade told me to Restart to finish the upgrade!!!
But when I did it, I got a black screen with :
4 lines beginning “mount:mounting…” etc,
then “Target file-system doesn’t have requested /sbin/init”

Ok challenge accepted!

I make a bootable USB stick from downloaded ISO(ubuntu-gnome-14.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso) and booted on it.
After this i open terminal and do :

#sudo su
#mkdir /media/host
#mkdir /media/disk
#mount /dev/sda2 /media/host
#mount -o rw,loop /media/host/ubuntu/disk/root.disk /media/disk
#nano /media/disk/etc/grub.d/10_lupin

Where i search (line 150 for me) something like :

linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-24-generic root=UUID=AAC884AC1F144321 loop=/ubuntu/disks/root.disk ro quiet splash $vt_handoff

and modified it :

linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.13.0-24-generic root=UUID=AAC884AC1F144321 loop=/ubuntu/disks/root.disk rw quiet splash $vt_handoff

#nano /media/disk/boot/grub/grub.cfg
and also search this line that contains ro and change it to rw
and rebooted to Live system

If you have some problem you can email me at
