I use MacBookPro8,2. First of all I installed MacOS, then WIn7 on sde4, then Ubuntu on sde5 and swop on sde5. After installing ubuntu win7 isn't loaded when I choose it in grub. Win boot writes the following message: file: \boot\BCD Status: 0xc0000225 An error occurred while attempting to load the boot configuration data What shall I do? Try to repair windows using CD(in this case I think I will damage grub) or I can somehow configure grub to make it work properly?

You can run fixboot and fixmbr from the Windows CD, but this will get rid of GRUB. –  Anonymous Nov 1 '11 at 23:44

Firstly, use the Boot Repair utility provided by the Windows 7 Boot Disk

After doing so, boot up from the Ubuntu live CD and follow these instructions to restore grub and fix windows on the mbr
