You need to turn off Fast Startup in Windows.

Fast Startup

  • i already turned it off and the problem still there!! – Islam Taha Apr 29 '14 at 20:39
  • @user269783 If that option is checked you're going to have a bad time, as Windows is "hibernating" and not actually shut down. – Elliott Frisch Apr 29 '14 at 20:40
  • i had unchecked the option before and it's still unchecked and return to ubuntu usb and used boot-repair but in this case ubuntu is return to boot but windows didn't boot and then used boot-repair to restore mbr but then ubuntu failed to boot!! – Islam Taha Apr 29 '14 at 20:45
  • Is this a UEFI or a MBR system? – Elliott Frisch Apr 29 '14 at 20:47
