Did you try reinstalling Windows at some point?
And why do you have Windows in an extended partition (sda4)?
Look at the bootscript: sda2 has no Windows boot files and sda4 seems still to have something there. Also half the Windows boot files are on sda1 and on sda7.
It might be a good idea to first reinstall the Windows bootloader to the MBR and then we can work on getting Ubuntu back up and running (this assumes you cannot boot into Windows right now?).
I am running out of ideas, but let's try and reinstall GRUB with a different method and see if it works:
Use Method 3: CHROOT
Obviously, you need to make sure you mount the right partitions and install GRUB to the MBR of sda.
thank you Rubi1200, the link was helpful although I found a thread with the same problem that has been solved. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1575498 comment 6 & 8 was so helpful and I'm back on ubuntu right now
I boot from ubuntu CD and do these:
and with chroot do these:Code:sudo mount /dev/sdaX /mnt sudo mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev sudo cp /mnt/etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf sudo chroot /mnt
Special thanks to Rubi1200 and isantopCode:dpkg --configure -a
