    Are you booting with this entry, the others will not work as there is a bug in grub2's os-prober that only creates BIOS boot entries that do not work with UEFI.

    Windows Boot UEFI loader

    This will not work

    "Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda3)

    Hi Oldfred, thanks for your reply! However, I am not sure what you are asking.

    Grub2's os-prober adds incorrect entries. But Boot-Repair then adds to 25_custom correct chain load entries that will work. So you cannot use the entries that refer to a specific partition and the 25_custom entries are above those entries in grub menu.

    So that some entries do not work is normal. But if you cannot boot with the correct entries, you may have left fast boot on which is hibernation or need other Windows repairs from a Windows repair flash drive.

    Thank you for your replies oldfred! They are very much appreciated . I am happy to say that Windows 7 will now boot properly after running the Asus repair from the recovery partition on my hard drive. Forunately, it gave me the option of restoring Windows to the first partition only, which is exactly what I wanted to do, so my Ubuntu and other partitions were left alone. Windows 7 will now boot sucessfully from GRUB and Ubuntu is still solid as well. Thanks again!

    Hi,
    I've spent a couple days on this and am finally at wit's end. I thought I had it fixed by using this utility as I was able to get back into Windows and xubuntu and then forgot about it. I went to go back to Windows today and it won't let me back now.

    My machine is a brand new Alienware Aurora-R4 with a 1TB drive. I've shrank the main partition in half and installed xubuntu there.

    Not sure what info you need to help, but here is the output from the program.

    Well....
    It looks like I might be OK. When I ran boot-repair it added quite a few entries for Windows and it seems like I was selecting the wrong one. The all had unstandard names like Windows UEFI Recovery something.efi, Windows recovery environment, etc..
    I tried them all and the one labled Windows UEFI Recovery without the filename at the end worked. I used grub customizer to edit the name and all seems to be working well.
    I had asked for help in #xubuntu and got some responses but nothing worked till I used your tool. I haven't had a new machine in years so this UEFI crap is all new to me.
    Many, Many Thanks!

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

    Dear Oldfred,
    I was out for some days and could not write in the meanwhile.
    Regarding my post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...7#post12750457

    I followed some of the suggested links. In this one: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2086383
    I got a second link: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI

    There, I noticed I have UEFI in my install. In advanced options of boot repair, in the second screen (GRUB location), I noticed my computer already was checked for the 'separete/boot/efi partition'. All I did was uncheck the box, check again and then clicked Apply. Boot-repair checked the system and was able to fix the boot options. I restart the computer and the grub menu was 100% fine!

    Thank you for the tips.
    Sincerely,
    Adriano

    @ginobili
    You show no Windows??
    One of the choices when installing Ubuntu is erase entire drive and just install Ubuntu to that entire hard drive. That is what you are showing. Also no vendor recovery partition, so the only way to recover Windows is from the backups that you probably did not make. If that is the case you may be able to get an install image from your PC vendor for less than just buying a full new copy of Windows.

    If you had some files that you have to try to recover STOP using system. Every bit of use is overwriting more data. Ubuntu is a lot smaller than Windows so some data may be recoveryable, but you need to use a live install version or Linux repairCD and use Testdisk or photorec.
