Good afternoon. First of all, sorry for my english, i know it's not the best you have ever read. This morning I installed Ubuntu 13.04 and I was trying playing a little with its configuration (preferences, nothing else) ans downloading some programs, trying to programm with the terminal and stuff.

When, a few minutes ago, I wanted to re-start Windows, I found that I couldn't.

I get to GRUB, everything than expected and I have 5 options (I'm writting from memory, because I have not noted them):

  • Ubuntu
  • Additionals options for Ubuntu
  • Memory Test
  • Another memory test (advance maybe?)
  • Windows (loader) on /dev/sda1

I choose the last option y it goes into Windows, or I thought so. The fact is that after GRUB disappeared, I left a black screen and the top lines begin to appear as distorted colors (if it's important I can take a picture with the phone and upload it) that does not extend to rest of the screen, there are 1 cm or something like that.

I don't find the solution nowhere because of everything I found is related to problems with GRUB does not appeared or something.

I leave the report of a sudo fdisk -l command on a Ubuntu terminal, hoping it can help:

I hope you can help me, i would be so grateful.

Greetings.

EDIT:

Sorry I didn't know that I could use format. I'm having problems with Ubuntu 13.04 and Windows 7.

Edit your question and add some info. Boot into Ubuntu open a terminal and issue these commands one at time. cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg and cat /etc/default/grub . Post the results here. Edit your question and add the results in code sample please. <$> –  NikTh Jul 31 '13 at 14:51
    
It could also be useful to know which version of Windows it is that you're having trouble with. –  Jez W Jul 31 '13 at 15:02
    
Edited and added extra information. –  user180162 Jul 31 '13 at 15:28
    
I assume from you question that you are able to boot into Ubuntu. I suggest you try installing Boot-Repair, a crafty little program that is able to identify and correct most of common GRUB problems. If you can't boot into Ubuntu, use a live CD to do it. –  João André Jul 31 '13 at 15:34

I have done it. Now GRUB have a extra option, Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda2 Both Windows option go to the black screen. The report from the Boot-Repair is in: paste.ubuntu.com/5933155 –  user180162 Jul 31 '13 at 15:44

Boot-Repair is saying file system is unclean. Did you resize Windows from the installer? And was Windows hibernated? After any resize of the NTFS partition Windows needs to run chkdsk. I would run that from your Windows repairCD or flash drive or some third party Windows repairCD that have chkdsk. If you had Windows hibernated you need to remove hiberfile and run chkdsk.

Force removal of hiberfil from Ubuntu
