    Re: [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in 1 click!

    @YannBuntu or anyone else. I tried the solution outlined but when I ran the commands I was never able to run the first command: bootrec.exe /fixboot

    The second command I ran would always work even if I changed drives since the error was always about the operation not being able to work on the current volume. I ran it by doing cd c://. On the off chance it worked I tried then booting it did not work and instead said "Found No Operating System". Just in case I tried to then do the Ubuntu Boot Repair and all the showed up upon restarting ate Ubuntu options.

    I am not sure what was wrong, maybe I should have ran the command on a different drive? Or is something else wrong here? I am not to good with the windows command line as cannot find a ls type of command to list all the drives other than dir which does me no good.

    I recommend you create the new ESP inside the first 100GB of your disk, and remove the boot flag from the original ESP.

    Well I tried the outlined solution in the the links posted to me and I have not had any success I can reinstall windows on my harddrive and then restore it later from a back up I made but I would very much like to avoid that headache and time waste with a more elegant solution, so if there is a solution other than the two suggested please let me know.

    @ jharris4491
    When you installed Windows to sdb, you had BIOS set to boot from sda, so Windows put the hidden 100MB boot/repair partition on sda. When you installed Ubuntu to sda you overwrote the Windows boot partition.

    If you set BIOS to boot sdb and run Windows repairs as suggested by Yann on the install in sdb, it should add the missing boot files to your main install. Windows will boot from one partition without the separate boot partition.

    after repairs bootmgr & bcd should then be in your sdb1 partition and then grub can find it to boot it.
    Vista/7 (with 7 the first two files are usually in a separate 100MB boot partition)
    /bootmgr /Boot/BCD /Windows/System32/winload.exe


    I did see one user just copy bootmgr & BCD to his install and edit BCD (as it was repair version) to be his install and it worked.

    @YannBuntu and OldFred

    Thank you for all the time you guys are spending trying to help us get boot problems sorted! I really appreciate all the various posts and help you have put up in the last year or so!!!

    Unfortunately, it became too much for me. I had tried your workaround, but didn't get anywhere, so I just wiped Win8 and now enjoy Ubuntu on the whole of the HDD. I hardly use (if ever!) Win anymore anyway!
    I've also bought a compaq for my wife, so will try again to dual-boot, so that we do have a win laptop if necessary. Hopefully it won't be a locked ESP too!!!

    @OldFred
    I switched my BIOs to first boot to the drive with Windows on it but it seems to have ignored the drive from what I can tell. The setting was saved because I checked the BIOS againg after I noticed it did not work.

    I wonder though if this may help. So at first I had just the 64gb ssd that is now sda and a 2tb HDD for data that I dual booted off of. See that was a bad idea for how small it was I then just installed windows on it and used ubuntu on my laptop. I then later got a larger ssd that I boot windows off of. Due to reasons unknown I was having trouble installing Ubuntu on the older 64gb drive and had to manually remove it and format it from my laptop. From there I installed Ubuntu on my desktop using a bootable USB. So basically my guess is that maybe the boot section was on this 64gb SDD before I formatted it. When I use to boot I was always prompted which version of Windows 7 to boot into and now no longer see that.

    Otherwise I do appologize for being difficult or stupid if I am. And thank you for being so patient and helpful.

    I think Windows will only do the repairs on the drive that is boot from BIOS and is the primary NTFS partition with the boot flag.

    So you need to set the Windows drive as boot, it will not work but then you have to run a full set of Windows repairs to fix it.

    Make sure boot flag is set for any partition you try to repair.
