The title pretty much says everything. It looks like I have the same problem as Unable to boot Windows after installing Ubuntu 12.04 - error: invalid efi file path but I already cycled that about 20 times and no result. When I select Windows UEFI loader from the Grub screen, it shows the Asus Preload recovery interface, ask me to select Language and stuff and after finishing it reboots, then same thing. What should I do? I have 2 Asus recovery DVDs, should I boot them and try to reinstall windows with those?


Boot Info Script gives me this: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=QkddYsjX

A Recovery Disk will delete all your data, do you have a grub menu? can you post what this script gives you –  GM-Script-Writer-62850 May 7 '13 at 15:43
I almost have no data on this computer, so I wouldn't mind a Recovery Disk. Anyway yes, I do have a grub menu. Pasted the script in the Update –  Bianca May 7 '13 at 16:56
Are you trying to boot Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda3) if you resized windows using the live disk windows will need to check the file system, have you disabled secure boot or uefi in your bios? link –  GM-Script-Writer-62850 May 7 '13 at 21:58
I tried, and I have no options such as Secure Boot... Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda3) gives me Invalid EFI path. I think the whole problem started with EasyBCD tho, I don't know how but maybe I messed up with that, since Windows UEFI loader used to work properly before –  Bianca May 9 '13 at 6:46
