I have Dell Inspiron 1525; installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and everything seemed well. Then did a reboot and tried to get into Vista - but I get a black screen with working cursor and nothing else.

I tried Boot Repair and it said:

Boot successfully repaired.

Please write on a paper the following URL:


If you still experience boot problems, indicate this URL to: boot.repair@gmail.com or to your favorite support forum.

You can now reboot your computer.

However, I am unable to boot into Windows Vista.
