    In that case you don't have an operating system, try to reinstall Ubuntu. Then we will find a solution for Windows.

    He sayd at the beginning he could just boot into Ubuntu, so I asume he has an OS, there just seems to be a problem with GRUB.

    I didn't. But I got the impression the error just occurred after hitting shift. It's a bit weird when you get a syslinux warning warning when going to the grub menu.

    But the fact that he was able to boot into Ubuntu before shows that there is an OS, that doesn't just disappear by pushing shift on boot. So re-installing Ubuntu seemed a bit premature to me. And as it turned out re-installing GRUB was enough.
