Please run Boot-Repair --> Recommended Repair, and indicate the URL that will appear. Then reboot and indicate if the GRUB menu gives you access to Ubuntu and Windows. –  LovinBuntu Oct 29 '12 at 7:37
Is this question still open? –  Huckle Oct 31 '12 at 19:23
Boot-Repair repairs either Windows or Ubuntu, dual boot is not working –  jagan Nov 4 '12 at 10:57
