    Talking Need help recovering Windows

    I got this laptop around nine months ago, and it came pre-installed with Windows 7 and Windows Vista. I didn't really care much for them, just checked to make sure they worked (they both did), then installed Ubuntu in a dual (triple?) boot. Ubuntu's been working perfectly ever since, but ever since I installed Ubuntu, I can't get into Windows. I have a feeling I might have messed something up while re-partitioning, or something of that nature. Windows 7 and Vista are still on GRUB at the bottom, but when I try to load 7, it says there was an error and I can either boot into safe launch/recovery mode or start normally. Choosing the safe launch tells me that there's an issue with it and I can fix it by inserting the Windows installation disk and selecting repair. However, since this came pre-installed with Windows, I do not have that disk. Choosing to start normally starts to load Windows, the logo starts to fill in like it normally does on seven, then about halfway through it stops and blue screens on me. Uh oh. I believe it said something about the device not working right or something.

    I don't really need Windows, but there are some games that I can't get working in Wine, so I figured I'd finally get around to fixing it.

    So, what do I need to do? Edit the partitions? Tell grub which device it needs to boot into if it's booting into the wrong one? I'm not sure really what to do.

    Oh, but to be clear, all the Windows stuff is still there, it's not like it got wiped. I can access the Windows filesystem through Ubuntu, and everything looks like it's still there and fine, I just can't boot into it.

    I can look up any info you need, right now I'm on 10.10, if that helps any, and I installed off a liveCD.

    Please install this in ubuntu. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair

    First, just do the create boot-info summary and post that back here for us to review. That should help to ensure the wrong action isn't taken.

    Re: Need help recovering Windows

    It looks to me like the win 7 partition is too small to be a working installation. Have you tried to run vista from grub? It looks like that should work.

    I'd try running vista first and see if that works. If the math I did in my head is right, it looks like the win 7 partition is about 1GB. That partition is also missing the /Windows/System32/winload.exe file. I also have a small windows partition but it is recognized by boot-repair as a recovery environment while yours isn't. I don't know if the 1GB is even big enough to be a copy of the install disks.

    Are you sure booting the sda2 windows partition ever worked? I also see the windows partitions recognized as partition type 42 SFS which is an encrypted file system type for DOS on 386 pc's as best I know. Please let us know if vista will boot and if not what happens. It may be that it's just that sda2 won't boot and I don't want us to take more action than needed.

    Re: Need help recovering Windows

    Just checked, Vista didn't work. Unlike 7 though, instead of giving me a start normally or start in safe mode option, it just said that it failed to boot, and asked for the installation disk like 7 does in its recovery mode, and I believe it said the problem was that a device was inaccessible.

    Come to think of it, I don't really remember 7 working. I mean, I know that I didn't find any errors before installing Ubuntu, and I know I checked Windows, but I'm not sure I checked 7. I'm pretty sure I did, but I can't specifically remember it, so I can't say for sure. As for the partition being too small, maybe I messed that up while repartitioning for Ubuntu, but Vista still isn't working...hmm.

    Re: Need help recovering Windows

    Can you describe what partitioning you did in preparation for adding ubuntu? Maybe that will help for us to figure this out. I looked over the output from boot-repair again and I don't think it will harm anything to let it try and do it's recommended repair. I also don't know that I think it will fix it.

    There are others in forums right now that are very good with this kind of thing and maybe one of them will have ideas.

    Re: Need help recovering Windows

    To be honest, I can't really remember, it was nine months ago, but I believe I had trouble using Ubuntu's partition editor and had to instead edit them from within Windows. I believe I used Vista for doing this...
    I forget whether this worked or if I went back and figured it out in Ubuntu.

    I can post the partition information, but I take it it's explained in the boot information?

    Re: Need help recovering Windows

    Yes the partition information is already in what you posted. There looks to me some disagreement in the script results about file system types and I can't explain that but don't know if it is the issue or not. I pinged another person to take a look and maybe he'll have a new insight. When I ran boot-repair on my own system as part of this, I also just chose to just create the results and it did tell me it had successfully repaired the system when I don't believe it made any changes. Did you try letting it do its recommended changes yet? If yes, do post the new script results.

    Re: Need help recovering Windows

    I believe you used Windows to create partitions. Windows has a nasty habit of converting from 'basic' to dynamic which fdisk shows as SFS partitions. Dynamic are like LVM is in Linux as there does not have to be a one to one match of physical partitions to logical. If the partitions are still one to one you may be able to convert back.

    I have seen where not all of Windows repair tools seem to work (or they need different directions which I do not know) for dynamic partitions.

    If you use any of these suggestions be sure to back up the Windows install or all your data before trying these.

    Dynamic volume is a Microsoft proprietary format developed together with Veritas (now acquired by Symantec) for logical volumes.
    You can use a third-party tool, such as Partition Wizard 4.2. to convert a convert a dynamic disk to a basic disk without having to delete or format them.
    The Partition Wizard software for Windows is supposed to be able to convert dynamic disks to regular partitions without data loss, so it may be what you need to get around this problem; however, I've never used it and so I can't be sure it will work.
