    Hello!

    After repartitioning the hard drive of a Packard Bell Dot S and installing Ubuntu on it, Windows 7 Starter won't start anymore, but instead Startup Repair gets started. This cannot repair the problem.

    I didn't mess up the partitions of Windows, but I can now select two Windows installs in GRUB. One is in Dutch and the other in English when Startup Repair starts.

    How can I repair Windows 7 Starter without losing data/Ubuntu install?

    Thanks!

    The easiest way is probably to use EasyBCD
    https://neosmart.net/wiki/easybcd/dual-boot/linux/ubuntu/


    It must be installed in Windows, as although Ubuntu is supported, it cannot work from Ubuntu
    I presume you can still boot into windows
    If you are having a problem doing that try F12 - probably boot options


    On the guide you want this section
    Adding Ubuntu to the Windows Bootloader

    Thank you. Unfortunately I can't boot to Windows, but I'll see if F12 boot options help.
