I have Windows 7 on my system and recently I installed Ubuntu 12.10 as dual boot, both worked fine.

One day I created some shortcuts to Windows folders in Ubuntu. After that, when I am logging in to Ubuntu. I get the following error message and I am unable to boot to Ubuntu.

Please can you help me find my bootsector info?

Whats the error message that you are getting when you are logging in? or do you mean when you choose Ubuntu from the Grub menu? –  Aaditya Bagga Aug 15 '13 at 13:57

Your Windows partition was a dyanamic disk,

as described from your earlier pastebin:

=================== Advice displayed in case of recommended repair

SFS detected. You may want to retry after converting Windows dynamic >partitioning (SFS partitions) to a basic disk. This can be performed via tools >such as TestDisk or EASEUS-Partition-Master / MiniTool-Partition-Wizard. Do you want to continue?

=================== Default settings

Recommended-Repair This setting would reinstall the grub2 of sda3 into the MBR of sda. Additional repair would be performed: unhide-bootmenu-10s

I think the problem was corrected, but to be sure look in windows, in your startbar, type

diskmgmt.msc

to open up disk management and check whether your disk is listed as dyanamic or basic.

You can take help from this link about it- http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/26829-convert-dynamic-disk-basic-disk.html

After your second boot-repair

Recommended-Repair This setting would reinstall the grub2 of sda3 into the MBR of sda. Additional repair would be performed: unhide-bootmenu-10s

Grub seems to have been successfully installed.

Boot successfully repaired. You can now reboot your computer.

So check about the Basic Disk/Dyanamic Disk part, and tell us more completely whetever problem you are facing.
