    Keep a Windows boot loader in your Windows drive. And have grub2 in your sdc Ubuntu drive. Then set BIOS to boot sdc drive.
    Boot-Repair's auto fix with multiple drives installs grub to the MBR of every drive. I prefer having different systems on different drives and each system to have its boot loader in the MBR of that drive. Actually I prefer a bootable system on every drive also.
    You should be able to use Boot-Repair and uncheck auto fix and check update MBR. Then choose Windows and sda to update and it will put a Windows type boot loader in the MBR of your Windows boot loader. You should then be able to boot Windows. Not sure if then EasyBCD will work or not. It probably needs updates. But change BIOS to boot sdc and you can boot either Windows or Ubuntu from grub menu.
    You can also use your Windows repairCD (you do have that do you not?) to run fixMBR to put an offical Windows boot loader in the MBR.

    @oldfred - Thanks for the reponse. There are a lot of suggestions in there and usually i would have tried several by now, but i am scared to try things at the moment. I just want to clarify one or two things. Your summary of how i booted is not 100% correct. Of the 3 drives, only 2 were bootable, that being the drive that had ubuntu on and the drive that held my win7 installation. The win7 drive could boot all by itself when everything else was plugged out. I then added the ubuntu drive, installed grub2 on there and then simply added an entry for the win7 drive. So i boot through grub into ubuntu and win7, but i could also boot win7 by changoing the boot order in the bios for instance. Does that make more sense? So i didn't use EasyBCD or grub4dos.

    Look, this little app went and copied grub2 into the mbr of all my drives (right??) when i clicked "Recommended repair" which i find disconcerting seeing as that seems a rather drastic thing to happen on "recommended settings". What i would like to do ideally is use the little app to undo what it has done. I don't know enough of drives and mbr's and partition tables to understand what is going on.


    • I would live to leave my current sdc/ext4/ubuntu drive as is, but have an entry again pointing to the win7 installation.
    • I would like to make my sdb/ntfs/data drive unbootable again.
    • I would like to make my sda/ntfs/win7 drive bootable again without grub, as in, if i set it as first boot device in bios i want it to boot with the default win7 boto lader.


    THanks you very much for the response and for taking the time to help. I am willing to try all your suggestions, but as i mentioned, i am scared of losing data or the win 7 installation. Knowing more of what my setup was and what i need, what do you suggest as a safe course of action?

    Buried in my suggestions above.
    Use Boot-Repair and uncheck auto fix, but then check update MBR. Then choose Windows and your sda drive for fix. It will install a Windows boot loader to your Windows drive and from BIOS you can always boot Windows directly.
    You can also do the same from a Windows repair CD or flash drive. Often the auto repair requires 3 times to fix everything, but all you need is the fixMBR command from the recovery console terminal.

    I do not suggest removing grub from your data drive or sdb. With boot loaders, you just overwrite with a new boot loader. The grub2 boot loader in sdb will not be used. The space is reserved for boot loaders and does not interfere with anything. There are commands to write zero back into MBR, but it is very low level and any typo can then cause huge problems. Best just to leave it.

    Ok thanks. During the auto fix that broke my windows drives, i noticed that it created a new partition on my windows drive and set that to bootable. Should i delete this partition or just leave everything as is and follow your suggestion? It also added both the original partition and the new partition it created to grub, but neither actually boots windows.

    Windows always wants its boot files on the drive you set in BIOS to boot from. So you should have BIOS set to boot from Windows drive. Rarely would you want Windows boot files on a different drive.
    It should not have created a separate partition. Normal new installs of Windows 7 do that, but if you have a partition with the boot flag like over installing Vista, then Windows 7 will install and boot from one partition.

    Grub always defaults to install to sda, which usually is the BIOS boot drive but not always where you want it.

    I don't know that much about drives/mbrs/partitions/, so i might use the wrong semantics when describing my issues, but as far as i know, this worked without a problem. I was booting windows from grub which was installed on the ubuntu drive just fine.

    Why? I didn't work that way before. I want to have grub installed on the ubuntu drive and have it boot windows from there. But i suppose i will try anything at this time.

    But it did. So should i leave that partition there or what should i do?

    I was very careful to not install grub in sda, but rather in sdc. I have no idea what this Boot-Repair app did.


    I will try this:

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

    You have Windows boot loader in sda and grub in sdc. If you go into BIOS and choose the sdc drive as default boot drive, does that not boot grub and then from grub menu you should be able to boot Windows.
    You can also test direct booting of Windows either by changing BIOS or using your one time boot key (f12 on my system) to choose a different boot drive.

    You do show boot files in both sda1 & sda2 and boot flag on sda2. Windows repairs and boots the partition with the boot flag so I would expect sda2 to be the one that boots. The sda1 may also boot. Grub will give you both as boot choices since it does not use boot flag but looks for boot files.

    If Windows does not boot for any reason, you should use the direct boot from sda. Windows repair console is in sda1, so I so not think f8 will get you into Windows repairs unless you change boot flag back to sda1. Still best to have a separate Windows repairCD or flash anyway. And then if Windows does not work it needs more fixes, often chkdsk.

    Grub will only be able to boot a working Windows.

    You show /grldr in both sda1 & sda2 which is grub4dos, usually from an install of EasyBCD.

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

    I installed 13.04 the other day on my Dell Inspiron 17r laptop. It came pre-installed with Windows 8. Using the instructions that I found here: http://www.everydaylinuxuser.com/201...e-windows.html I was able to successfully install Ubuntu. However, I can now no longer boot into Windows 8. I ran Boot Repair and still have the same issue. Additionally, when I restart and press F12 to get into the startup options, selecting the Windows Boot Menu option still loads Ubuntu.

    Here is the code from the Boot Repair that I ran:

    You can now reboot your computer.
    
    
    The boot files of [The OS now in use - Ubuntu 13.10] are far from the start of the disk. Your BIOS may not detect them. You may want to retry after creating a /boot partition (EXT4, >200MB, start of the disk). This can be performed via tools such as gParted. Then select this partition via the [Separate /boot partition:] option of [Boot Repair]. (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootPartition)

    @Kris_Kealiher
    You only show Linux install. Only your efi partition stil shows Windows boot files. I think you chose the erase entire drive (in RED) option when installing. You also erased the vendor recovery, so you can only restore Windows from your backups. If no backups you may be able to get a recovery DVD (not full installer) to restore system from your vendor for a nominal charge.

    It looks like you are booting in BIOS/CSM mode not UEFI. You need to turn UEFI on, but keep secure boot off and choose the ubuntu entry. Since you have Mint I do not know if entry is from Mint or previous install of Ubuntu?
    Never seen this error, but it seems to be that your UEFI is not correct. Make sure you have downloaded the most current version from vendor. And if error persists, you may be able to manually edit the entry.

    chroot /mnt/boot-sav/sda2 efibootmgr -v
