Ubuntu: Can't start Windows 7 [closed]


I get this error message:

Windows Boot Manager    
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:   1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.   2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."   3. Click "repair your computer." If you don't have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.   File: \boot\bcb   Status: 0xc000000f   Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

I need the Windows disk, but I do not have it.

I need to fix this through Ubuntu.

I tried a Windows recovery disk, but it did not recognize it.

Ubuntu is 12.04 desktop on bootable flash drive.

Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium.


This is only fixable by using a Windows recovery DVD (essentially your bootloader configuration has been corrupted), and so wouldn't be on-topic for AskUbuntu.

However, because I'm a nice guy, I'll point you in the right direction. You'll need to download a Windows 7 ISO (perfectly legally, as long as you're using it in conjunction with a legal licence) and run the Startup Repair option.

If burning to DVD doesn't work for you, and you have access to another Windows PC, you can use the Windows 7 USB Installer Tool to create a bootable USB installer.
