    Windows XP blinking cursor after choosing it from GRUB

    Ok, so I'm having this problem. I have also seen something called Boot Repair

    Any help? I've tried Boot Repair

    Result:

    Code:
    An error occurred during the repair.
    
    Please write on a paper the following URL:
    http://paste.ubuntu.com/1483560/
    
    If  you still experience boot problems, indicate this URL to:
    boot.repair@gmail.com 
    
    You can now reboot your computer.
    Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sda (640GB) disk!
    
    The boot files of [The OS now in use - Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS] are far from the start of the disk. Your BIOS may not detect them. You may want to retry after creating a /boot partition (EXT4, >200MB, start of the disk). This can be performed via tools such as gParted. Then select this partition via the [Separate /boot partition:] option of [Boot Repair]. (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootPartition)
    Happy new year!
