This question already has an answer here:

I recently installed ubuntu in my computer, once it installed it was unable to boot windows saying that it was crashing due to the modifications the computer recently went through, then i heard about boot-repair which i also installed on my computer but now its telling me that I need the 64 bit version which I already downloaded and wrote it on a CD, but when i try to run the program both through the cd and just the downloaded file it never opens or starts running, any comments?

Thank you for your time.

Have you tried using a live cd and installing the boot-repair again?

Or if its not working you can download the iso image file of the boot-repair here and burn it to a disk or use UnetBootIn to make it bootable using a usb drive.

    Boot-Repair ISO has not been updated for a couple of years as of June 2017. Better to use the ppa which has been updated and install into your Ubuntu live installer. Second option in : help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair – oldfred Jun 30 '17 at 14:41
