since yesterday i'm stuck with the dual boot. I can't see Windows 8.1 in the menu. The problem started when I removed Ubuntu from the windows disk manager, so I reinstalled it for solving it. Now I have that error, tried to solve with boot repair without success (http://www.paste2.org/87V4MBXY)


use "boot-repair disk" google it. It is live CD about 600mb. Mandatory condition is it should be connected with WiFi before repairing boot loader.It will automatically scan your all bootable drives and will give you instructions on the spot. A menu will come where mouse will not work. In that condition you have to use tab to move courser and space to select.

  • 'Windows is hibernated, refused to mount.' Boot-Repair report shows your issue. Fast start/hibernation is Windows 8 or 10 issue: askubuntu.com/questions/843153/… – oldfred Mar 5 '17 at 17:03
  • Damn, it worked but now my '\Windows\system32\winload.exe' is damaged. – Stefano Mar 5 '17 at 18:03
  • Hard to say exactly what caused your issue, not enough information. Remember that when removing Linux as a secondary OS which was installed AFTER Windows was installed removes also Bootloader. In order to fix your issue you need a Recoverable CD and issue the following commands: bootrec /RebuildBcd bootrec /fixMbr bootrec /fixboot – jedi Mar 5 '17 at 18:27
  • If you have ISO of windows 8.1 then by booting it from usb you can repair boot loader of it. Then again you can create dual booting with Boot repair disk. On the other hand if you have backup of windows 8.1 you can restore it and then create Dual boot with same procedure. – Alamjit Singh Mar 5 '17 at 19:27
