Windows 7 won't run after I installed Ubuntu, I've triple booted on my Macbook and I installed Windows before Ubuntu.

I used BootRepair and got this report:

I have no idea what to do, I'm a beginner to all this and I would really appreciate any help.

Thanks.

Moved to Apple sub forum.

I do not know Macs but they use a hybrid gpt/MBR system as the Mac is booting an older UEFI but boots Windows in MBR. Only the first 3 or 4 partitions then are synchronized. But Windows has to be in the MBR part of the drive and if sda5 is in the gpt only part.
