    Installed Ubuntu 11.04 -> windows 7 broke

    Hello

    Ive been running windows 7/Ubuntu dualboot for some years now and never had any problems.
    Some months ago I got a new Patriot Inferno ssd. Ofc the first thing I did was to installl windows 7, it had no problems, ran fast and smooth.
    Then when I reinstalled grub I started to get error when trying to start windows, the logo never apeared and all I got was the message "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software....." "Status: 0x00...00F"
    "Info: The boot selection failed because a required device was inaccessible.".

    It does not matter what order I install windows and ubuntu in, or how many times Ive tried to reinstall grub.
    Windows 7 will not work while I have grub/windows installed.

    Right now Ive got them installed on separate drives, ubuntu on the ssd and windows on a partition on a 1tb hdd.
    Unfortunately I need to have windows for .net programing and gaming..

    I saw this requested in another post so Ill just put it here:
