Hey guys I booted into my windows 7 after a month and there is some error. Not able to do any work on it properly. I dont have any problem in reinstalling windows but the issue is that it will overtake grub and I wont be able to boot into ubuntu. So let me know exact measures that I can take at the moment.

Will recovering my windows too overtake grup bootloader.

Note Error in windows : Error- file or directory C:\$Mft is corrupt and unreadable. Run chkdsk utility. wlmail.exe corrupt file.

Thanks

Regarding: Note Error in windows : Error- file or directory C:\$Mft is corrupt and unreadable. Run chkdsk utility. wlmail.exe corrupt file. No one on AU is going to anwser that since this is purely related to Windows. –  Rinzwind Feb 15 '13 at 9:33

You don't need to re-install your Windows. Just do as Windows say and run chkdsk

No problem with reinstalling windows 7 . Go ahead.. After installing windows 7 , First you insert the ubuntu cd and update the grub bootloader. The steps are,

1). Boot the ubuntu using live cd .

2). Open the terminal

3). type the command sudo udate-grub.

4). reboot
