  3. [ubuntu] Re: No Such Device - trying to boot Windows from Grub after install

  9. [ubuntu] Re: No Such Device - trying to boot Windows from Grub after install

    I'm going to guess Error Code: 0xc000000e on boot after that it might not be. :P
    I am going to try and repair the windows boot now, and then see if I can reinstall GRUB after to take care of it......
