For more than a year, I dual booted my Vista laptop with Fedora and later Ubuntu 12.04. I used EasyBCD as my bootloader, and I had no issues.
I recently replaced Vista with Windows 7, which of course deleted the EasyBCD bootloader. I used the 'boot repair' live CD (64-bit version) to create a new Grub bootloader,
Now it seems when I use Ubuntu, there's a very good chance Windows 7 won't boot the next time I use it.
When switching back to Windows, the "Starting Windows" animation appears and then the computer restarts. Windows Startup Repair *always* states that it can't repair the problem, but usually after two or three lengthy repair attempts, Windows eventually starts up. Occasionally I've had to use System Restore to arbitrarily revert to an earlier state, and once I actually had to reinstall Windows.
Can anyone suggest a fix for this? I wonder if switching to Grub instead of EasyBCD is the issue, but it doesn't seem likely.
Thanks for any advice!
