    Does Windows boot? Script's NTFS driver is having issues mounting NTFS partition. That is corruption needing chkdsk from a Windows repairCD or hibernated system, which you should not have if dual booting.

    And then you do not have grub fully installed. Boot-Repair has an option to uninstall and totally reinstall grub which you may need to run.
