    Please post link to BootInfo from Boot-Repair.
    I cannot read you post. I think it has wrong line endings.

    Ubuntu won't boot. 13.04.
    It goes to the ubuntu spash screen then goes immediately to a balck screen with a blinking cursor.
    The one click fixer didn't work. Here is the error file:

    If you hold shift key from BIOS until menu appears, you should get the grub menu.
    With only Ubuntu installed, it does not normally show menu.

    At grub menu you can choose recovery - second line may be in sub menu. Or on first line use e to edit boot stanza scroll down to linux line and near end replace quiet splash with nomodeset.
    Boot repair also has a function to add nomodeset. But that makes it standard and you may not need it all the time, it you are going to install nVidia or AMD proprietary drivers.
    Boot-Repair --> Advanced options --> GRUB options tab --> tick "Add kernel option: nomodeset" --> Apply


    Black screen is usually video issue, may be other boot parameters. What video card/chip do you have?

    I checked the secure boot thing and it is not checked. I also booted up windows and made sure to completely shut it down. Still not able to click that windows checkbox option.

    I have a question:
    Do I have to run boot-repair off a live usb? I have been running it from the installed Ubuntu OS. Could that be why the windows option doesn't appear?

    BTW, the link you supplied was not working unfortunately.

    If you have downloaded Boot-Repair that should be fine. It is the same version that you get with a direct download. Have you updated it, to make sure it is the most current version? Or recently downloaded it.

    UEFI or BIOS is where you would make permanent setting changes to boot order, f9 is one time boot of something different. But if you set Windows to boot first from UEFI, you will never get the option to boot Ubuntu. In grub you can change the default to boot Windows first if you prefer.

    It is not just shutting Windows down as it still uses hibernation. You have to turn hibernation off. And fast boot off in UEFI/BIOS which is different than the Windows setting.

    For information, I just uploaded some new Boot-Repair-Disk ISOs: https://sourceforge.net/projects/boot-repair-cd/files/

    They are now compatible with LVM / RAID, and the 64-bit version is compatible with UEFI / SecureBoot.
    Like Linux-Secure-Remix... but lighter (500MB).

    Sorry for the bad link. Sometimes the web-site software abbreviates links, and I should always check that it works. I fixed it in the original post, and here it is again.

    Boot repair revived two out of three OS's.
    Windows vista - worked
    ubuntu 12.04 - worked
    ubuntu 13.04 - unsuccessful
    with error from grub
    error: no such device : <very long hex number >
    error: unknown file system
    error: you need to load the kernel first
    I think ubuntu13.04 worked immediately after install but everything stopped working after reboot.
    Boot Repair made all but ubuntu13.04 accessible again.

    The link to the boot Repair session is:

    This whole Boot Repair package is pretty impressive. I hope we can get my ubuntu 13.04 working
    Thanks,

    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    Some systems have issues booting from beyond 100GB on a drive. Not sure if BIOS setting or grub bug. They did fix a bug in grub on very large partitions but some still seem to have issues.

    Not sure with Vista, but some find turning on AHCI helps, not IDE. Large or LBA may also be better if in IDE mode. With Windows 7 you have to install AHCI drivers before changing in BIOS, but I do not know if Vista has that or not.

    If BIOS does not work then the only work around has been to have / (root) fully inside the 100GB point on drive or a separate /boot that is fully inside the 100GB point. I often install / in 25GB partitions and then have large data partitions so I can shared data. I do not attempt to share a /home as there may be conflicts. Some have used a shared /home but later have issues. Your install in sda2 has some files beyond 100 but within 137GB which may indicate the IDE setting?

    Not sure what FIBMAP is, but quick search does not show that as major issue.
    Also not sure why it dumped the PBR - partition boot sector of sda1. Script really only wants the .R.NTFS at start and 55 aa in hex at end. Windows does not boot without valid PBR. I might suggest a run of chkdsk as that may update something.

    When dual booting or more, data partitions are a good idea. Especially with Windows a shared NTFS data partition can reduce Windows issues. Windows does not like or users make errors with Linux writing into the Windows system partition. The Linux NTFS drive exposes all the normally hidden files & folders. Better to set the Vista system partition as read only and use a NTFS data partition for read-write.

    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    I have had kubuntu 12.04 installed for quite some time now. I just updated to 12.10 (with the intention of going up to 13.04 after) and now I cannot boot any more

    Problem is, I cant reach grub neither. I ran boot-repair live off usb but it didnt help. Here is my log - http://paste.ubuntu.com/5648886/

    I have a 120 gig SSD that my install is on and then a couple of 1tb disks running in raid.

    Any help would be much appreciated!
