Grub not finding Windows 7?


I reinstalled windows with kubuntu then fixed grub with a live cd after the microsoft bootloader was installed. Now my laptop just boots into Kubuntu. Does anyone know how to fix this? /dev/sda2 is Windows, dev/sda3 and /dev/sda5 are Kubuntu.

Not enough info - we can't tell what you did, if you did it correctly, or what effect it may have had. Go here, do as it says and post the output (you may already have the script on kubuntu).

You may try to add /dev/sda2 as a Windows momentuary on the grub.cfg in Kubuntu.

Example:

menuentry "Windows 7" {
set root=(hd0,1)
chainloader +1
}
