Hi everyone,

I used to have Windows 7 on my laptop, then it started having random problems. So I installed Ubuntu and then installed Windows 7 clean again on another partition. Problem is, whenever it booted I just saw a screen with only a flashing underscore and nothing happening.

So I reinstalled windows 7, installed Grub, ran grub-update command. Grub boots fine, its menu shows Ubuntu and Windows 7 choices correctly.
Ubuntu works fine, but Windows still only shows this useless flashing underscore.
<-- did this several times to be sure.

Any ideas ?

I haven't, I still prefer being on linux because I'm relatively new to it and I'd like to have a solid base before doing these kinds of things.

I've given up hope for a neat solution so I am currently in the process of reformatting the windows partition to install Vista
