    Re: installed Ubuntu and now can't access Windows.

    Some people on #ubuntu think maybe the unknown partition was Windows boot, and it's been ruined.

    This will be bad...

    I just tried boot repair and got this: 'GPT detected. Please create a BIOS-Boot partition (>1MB, unformatted filesystem, bios_grub flag). This can be performed via tools such as Gparted. Then try again.Alternatively, you can retry after activating the [Separate /boot/efi partition:] option.'

    Hello

    Your Windows is installed in Legacy (not-EFI) mode.
    Ubuntu must be installed in the same mode, but Ubiquity (the Ubuntu installer) is buggy and installed it in EFI mode.

    Solution:
    1) Via Gparted, delete your EFI partition (sda3). Instead, create a BIOS-Boot partition (1MB, unformatted filesystem, bios_grub flag).
    2) Run Boot-Repair's Recommended Repair
    3) Indicate the URL that will appear
    4) Reboot the PC and tell us what you observe.
