Windows 7 doesn't boot after Ubuntu install

not able to boot into window 7. I am naive in ubuntu usage. Pls guide immediately. The following link a got after boot repair. http://paste.ubuntu.com/1218634/ full message is as follows: you can now reboot your computer. Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sda (500GB) disk!

The boot files of [The OS now in use - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS] are far from the start of the disk. Your BIOS may not detect them. You may want to retry after creating a /boot partition (EXT4, >200MB, start of the disk). This can be performed via tools such as gParted. Then select this partition via the [Separate /boot partition:] option of [Boot Repair]. (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootPartition)

you could also use GParted Live CD to fix MBR

or hold down Shift until the grub menu showed up and choose Windows to try booting

In order to have windows 7 back just run the windows 7 CD in repair mode.

follow this in order to have the console : http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ss/windows-7-startup-repair.htm

Under the console you'll type :

fixboot

and

fixmbr

Those two commands will restore normaly the whole windows 7 boot process. if not follow the procedure of the link I gave you.

So now you are in single boot with windows 7 and Ubuntu is "disabled"

In order to restore Ubuntu and activate the dual boot correctly you may want ubuntu back.

For that follow this link at the easybcd part : http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2011/05/22/how-to-dual-boot-windows-7-and-ubuntu-11-04/2/
