Boot problem in Ubuntu dual boot os: Solved

I had been using Ubuntu for quite a long time. Sometimes, problems arise as such like:
  •  Windows cannot boot.
  • or Ubuntu cannot boot.
Solving this problem is easy: however it requires you to have:
  • Internet connection.
  • Ubuntu live cd or bootable pendrive.
Now lets go through how we could solve this using a software:
  1. Boot from the pendrive or cd.
  2. Use the Try Ubuntu mode on first page.
  3. Connect to the net
  4. Open the terminal using ctrl+alt+t and do the following steps:
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && (boot-repair &)
Now a window will pop up after installation and it will give you the options. Choose whichever is appropriate and it will solve the problem.
It also provides link to the error log file from where you can know more of the problem or ask the community about it.

.......So don't worry next time...just do the steps listed above...If it does not solve ...leave a comment here..lets see to it..
