    Dual boot win7 and ubuntu problem booting windows

    Hi, I have a laptop with win7 64bit and I installed ubuntu 16.04 as dual boot. Usually when I boot into windows it errors out as shown in the attached image. Has anyone seen this before? If I let it sit for about 30 seconds then restart I can then get to a windows screen saying it errored out and from there I can boot into windows.

    I do not know if this will show anything out of place or not.
    Is system BIOS or UEFI?
    Grub really only boots working Windows.

    But may be best to see details:
    Post the link to the Create BootInfo summary report. Is part of Boot-Repair:

    I figured it out. I set the line GRUB_GFXMODE=1366x768 for my laptop. I'm learning this as I go.
