I have had my computer set up to dual boot Ubuntu alongside Windows Vista for about a month or so now. I used the Wubi Installer.

 

And just recently, I downloaded a program called EasyBCD, which is like an easy to use boot menu editor. I used it to rename both the boot menu OS names and also changed the wait time. Pretty sure that's all I did within the program and then I restart to check out the changes, it ended up changing both of the boot menu OS system names to the name of the Windows Vista option and either one I select, it takes me to Windows Vista. I can no longer select Ubuntu now. I figured since I don't care too much for all my settings and preferences saved on Ubuntu, I just uninstalled it since I used the Wubi Installer and the boot menu would go to only the Windows Vista option again and I can install Ubuntu again after, but it's still the same with two options to select Windows Vista.

 

I haven't tried installing Ubuntu again, I figured I would see what BC has to advise me first. Any suggestions?

Take A Look At These Links

 

There seem to be varying versions of EasyBCD, so I'm not sure that any of the links above apply to every version.

I just want to turn my boot menu back to normal with no selection and automatically booting up Vista. Like it was.
