When my computer loads the Grub menu shows up and gives the option to either boot to ubuntu or to Windows 7, however when I click on Windows 7 it writes some lines and then brings me back to the grub boot menu.

I tried repairing using boot-repair, and it didn't work, instead I now have 2 entries for Windows 7, and neither work. Here is the URL:

Please help!

Thank you in advance.

How did you install Ubuntu? – To Do Jun 26 '12 at 17:16

  1. First you should report a "GRUB can't boot Windows" bug here.
  2. Then boot on a Windows CD (32bits or 64bits) then type bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot to repair direct access to Windows.
  3. Finally use Boot-Repair to recover the GRUB menu.
