In case you are wondering why I wanted it fixed, it's because I can't do everything under with Linux, even with wine.
the reason i asked was because you werent clear enough that you couldn't boot ubuntu
i was under the impression that it crashed during boot.
However the sounds of it System Restore has the same effect as reinstalling windows.
You cannot install windows after installing Linux as it wipes the boot sector .
The problem you have is you need to reinstall Grub Boot Menu.
Unfortunately i don't know how to that manually.
I usually Reinstall when this comes along
or in the case of Suse + Mandriva running Upgrade from the install CD fixes it.
