    Re: error: out of space.....please HELP!!!

    You still have grub in MBR. You need to use advanced mode not auto fix and choose Windows and sda to add a Windows boot loader.

    Hi
    I tried to do what you suggest. I run boot-repair in advanced mode and checked
    - reinstall GRUB in the Main options tab
    -Windows & sda in the GRUB Location
    - Reset extra space after MBR + Uncomment GRUB_GFXMODE+ATA disk support

    This was apparently successful since I can now make linux boot finally
    The only problem is that I cannot boot into windows.

    At startup the dual loader menu appears although the characters are bigger than usual
    This gives me the possibility to start up form either ubuntu or Windows either in sda1 or in sda2
    but none of them works. When I try to bood with any of them I receive a disk error message
    I wonder if this can be due to the options that I checked above.

    Also I tried to repair the Windows part running the start-up repair for Windows 7 but dind't work.

    Eventually I removed ubuntu and will try to reinstall it by selcting disk space within 100 Gb
    Thanks for all your help
    Cheers

    Grub only boots a working Windows. So I still might install a Windows boot loader to MBR. Most have said that booting Windows from grub is so quick that f8 to get into recovery is difficult, you have to be very quick.
    Or better to use the Windows repair CD or flash drive to fix Windows.

    Reinstalling Ubuntu will not fix Windows booting.
    Also be careful to only use manual install or Something else. If you do not see Windows and multiple operating systems during install choices, and it only sees Ubuntu, then it will erase entire drive as it does not correctly see Windows. With manual install you just choose existing partitions.

    But if Ubuntu boots you do not need to reinstall?
