Ubuntu works fine, but I can't boot to Vista anymore. All my files on that partition are fine--I can browse to them from Ubuntu easily. But my whole life is pretty much on Vista. My iPod syncs up to it, my schedule is on Outlook, my webcam only works on Windows (can't video chat anymore), and I can't play my favorite games. I'm confident that I will eventually be able to boot back up to it again because I can still access the files, but it's very frustrating to not be able to use Vista right now.
I went to the Ubuntu forums...
...and posted the same thing there, but responses are kind of slow and the people who were helping me before haven't posted in over a day.
The old boot loader I used was apparently the one that Windows uses (BCDEdit or something) but my computer is using the Linux boot loader now (grub, I believe) and even after the modifications I've made (see the Ubuntu forum link above), it still won't recognize Windows. If I could get the old Windows boot loader back, with full access to Ubuntu, that would be preferable. If not, could anyone please help me to get the Ubuntu boot loader to recognize Windows? I've got the hard drive space to back everything up on my slave drive and re-install both OSes, but it would take weeks to set up everything the way I like it again,
