I wanted to try Ubuntu, so I went with Wubi. While I like what I see with Ubuntu, i'm now unable to boot windows 7. I can see both windows7 and Ubuntu at boot time. If i select Ubuntu, it boots and everything is ok. But Windows7 does not boot. I'm currently travelling and dont have access to my Windows install cds. is there anything i can do in the meanwhile to get windows to boot. i will get the clean and proper install once i get back. at present i just need windows working.

thanks for the help.

What happens when you try to boot Windows? –  bcbc Apr 24 '12 at 4:40
    
It is better to run windows after installing ubuntu and make any repair by itself before booting to ubuntu.I faced this problem when I was using vista and ubuntu.Installing ubuntu after windows creates the default entry as ubuntu and boots in to it if u did not selected either. –  beeju Apr 29 '12 at 8:45
