I cannot boot into windows 7 after trying to dual boot. Here's my BootInfo Summary from boot-repair:

I'd appreciate some help in trying to get back into Windows.

Thanks!

What's wrong? Are you not seeing the Grub screen (the one where you select the OS) at all? (That is, it boots into Ubuntu without giving you a choice?) Try holding down Shift during boot-up. Or is it failing whenever you choose Windows? That would be trickier to deal with. –  JamesTheAwesomeDude Nov 27 '12 at 22:20
    
Thanks for the quick reply. Initially I wasn't getting a Grub screen, now I can get it but only shows Ubuntu and Ubuntu recovery. –  Ben Harvey Nov 27 '12 at 22:21
    
Uh-oh. This is bad(ish). I'd recommend reinstalling the Grub bootloader; perhaps that will fix it. (be sure to install it to /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1.) –  JamesTheAwesomeDude Nov 27 '12 at 22:24
    
These links might be helpful. The Grub bootloader: gnu.org/software/grub ...and some useful info: dedoimedo.com/computers/grub2.html ...anyway, I hope that helps! –  JamesTheAwesomeDude Nov 27 '12 at 22:26
    
We don't really support LinuxMint here (FAQ), but try running sudo update-grub from a terminal anyway. –  mikewhatever Nov 27 '12 at 22:27
