I had windows 10 alongside Ubuntu 14.04 on the same hard drive.

When I switch on and the list of options to boot appears I can boot into Ubuntu ok and access all windows files, but can not boot into windows 10.

When I choose windows 10 to boot I get the message:

error: no such device: 27795F9B69145D5C.
press any key to continue...

Then the screen goes blank

I am new to Ubuntu.

    Edit your question to include the output, from the terminal app, of sudo blkid and cat /etc/fstab. – heynnema Dec 25 '16 at 15:56
  • i hope this is info you asked – VULETICA Dec 25 '16 at 18:22
  • The line /dev/sda3: LABEL="C:/" UUID="27795F9B69145D5C" TYPE="ntfs" tells me that indeed that the device IS there. What I don't see is any swap file or swap partition. Post the output of sudo fdisk -l and a current-window-only screenshot of gparted. Do you have a Windows 10 install/repair disc? – heynnema Dec 25 '16 at 18:45
  • i dont have windows 10 install/repair disc as i installed it from internet – VULETICA Dec 25 '16 at 18:50
  • Did this ever boot into Windows 10 after Ubuntu was installed? Are you still working on a gparted screenshot? – heynnema Dec 25 '16 at 19:11

it seems the OS is looking for a UUID that doesn't exist. Use Boot Repair tool to repair the issue,install it via terminal

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair

Then if the simple click won't fix things,then you will post the Booting Summary for further help.

  • thank you sentinel, i tried your instructions and its still same – VULETICA Dec 25 '16 at 18:23
  • can you post the booting summary from the same tools so as i could see the errors – Arduino_Sentinel Dec 25 '16 at 18:27
  • you should try sudo update-grub fit,it won't work,then you are going to have to modify boot/grub/grub.cfg manual,excuse that command first,if it won't work then we shall proceed with the next setup – Arduino_Sentinel Dec 25 '16 at 18:56
  • @ArduinoSentinel you don't modify grub.cfg by hand. – heynnema Dec 25 '16 at 19:02

    tried reboot and still nothing, same message error: no such device – VULETICA Dec 25 '16 at 20:01
