    I thank you all so very much for all your help. I'm going to try and re-dualboot W8 and Ubuntu and hopefully not fudge anything up some time in the future. Any suggestions on a page that shows the exact steps to go through?

    Once again... thank you very VERY much!

    How to mark this as solved?

    Yes. It starts with "I've spent a lot of time trying to get my Windows 8 PC to boot again after cloning to a new SSD and try to summarize how I finally got it all working -"

    and thanks oldfred.

    Windows XP startup Blue Screen (in Swedish), can this be repaired using Boot-Repair?

    I don't think so, but it does not hurt to try.

    I could be wrong but I think your problem in 'inside' Windows. If you are lucky, it's 'only' a recoverable error in the file system, that can be fixed with
    Code:
    chkdsk /f
    run from Windows, Bart PE or Windows 7 PE.

    Thanks! I might try Bart PE or Windows 7 PE. BTW, chkdsk /r could even be better. Wubi might be the cause of this possible damaged (Windows) NTFS file system; so next time, I might run (L)Ubuntu on a separate partition.

    That's right, chkdsk /r could even be better, more thorough but slower

    And since our developers have not managed to make wubi work with Windows 8, it is being phased out. I think there is no wubi in 13.04, and there will be no wubi in 13.10. So it might be a good idea for you to install Lubuntu on a separate partition. There is even a migrating tool for that purpose.

    Hi everybody,
    I tried to install ubuntu onto a usb flash drive and ended up messing up my win7 machine. I was sent to this thread and ran the boot repair disk and got the message to write down this address: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5702041/

    Can anyone here read swahili?

    Can you boot Windows7? Have you tried booting into Windows7 without Ubuntu USB plugged in?

    To boot Ubuntu from USB on a machine that boots with UEFI you need to have a 'GUID Partition Table" (GPT) on the USB Flash Drive. You don't.

    First of all make sure that your Windows7 can boot. I think it should. If not run windows recovery or windows repair. Once this is done and confirmed:

    Then Partition your USB flash drive using Gparted from Ubuntu Install DVD/USB and create new partition table with GPT. Create First partition on as 300MB FAT32 and put a Boot Flag on it. Then create rest of the Partitions. Make sure you are booting with EFI/UEFI mode and Install Ubuntu. Install GRUB on USB where you are installing Ubuntu. Reboot. If you have any problems booting then use BOOT-REPAIR to fix the boot.

    Also, You have to tell your BIOS/UEFI to boot USB devices first to be able to boot from UBUNTU-USB.

    When I turn my (new) windows 7 pc on, I get the (ubuntu) screen that lets me choose ubuntu or win7, win7 recovery, etc. But any of the windows 7 choices get a message that boot information is missing.

    But NOW look! Last night I was typing in the sudo chroot commands that the boot repair disk was giving me and now when I turn the computer on I get the message: "error: file '/boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found.
    grub rescue>

    Thanks for the question. I hate feeling so helpless.
