I have dual boot set-up with Windows 8.1(original OS) and Ubuntu 14.10.

Recently, Windows stopped booting. I am presented with a 'Recovery' screen with the Error Code: 0xc0000225.

Windows stopped working around the same time that I upgraded from 13.10 to 14.04.

How do I repair the Windows partition?

Also, I think I used to have a 'Recovery' options available in the Grub menu. However, I attempted to run boot-repair first and now I only have 4 options: Ubuntu Ubuntu with advanced options Windows System Setup Is there a way to return the 'Windows Recovery' option to the Grub menu?
