I just installed ubuntu 11.10 alongside with Windows 7. Ubuntu starts and work fine. Instead, when i click on the last option:

windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda1)

the bootloader reload itself and doesn't start windows 7! So now i can only use ubuntu! For me ubuntu is good etc, but i like also to use windows if possible... can you help me?

Here's my Boot Info Script: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5655022/


In ubuntu open a terminal and run

sudo update-grub

The system should regenerate all bootable kernels and chain loading boot partitions

A word of note, it is very possible that grub is fine but the Wondow boot sector is broken. Grub chainloads the Wondow bootstrapper.

you may need to run a repair from Wondow disc/media so its the only bootable system then use the ubuntu livecd/disc to re-install grub

  • Done some further research. You csn also try a utility called boot-repair.help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair
