Can’t boot Vista after installing Ubuntu 13.04 alongside Vista – after Boot-Repair

By Jeff Shaw

Have installed Ubuntu 13.04 alongside Windows Vista.
I was able to boot either for a while but now only Ubuntu – if I select Vista from menu it returns to the menu after failing to Boot.
Have tried System Repair on Vista but doesn’t correct problem.
There must be a simple solution to this – I really don’t want to reinstall Vista from old Recovery Discs.
The guys at Ubuntu can’t push this dual use with it failing so easily! Or can they?
Have looked at some related problems but no help to me.

I ran Boot-Repair as per forum advice. Rebooted but still can’t get Vista.
