GRUB won't load windows partition - root (hd0,0), Filesystem type unknown partition..
 
Hello. I installed Kubuntu on a computer. Kubuntu loads just fine, but the Microsoft Windows XP partition does not.

There error is as follows:

Code:

root (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type unknown partition type 0x7
savedefault
makeactive
chainloader +1

The Windows partition still exists to my knowledge. I used to the partitioner on the LiveCD and it seems to have worked.

So, any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Code:

      rootnoverify (hd0,0)
      chainloader +1
      makeactive

Same results...Except 'root' turns to 'rootnoverify'.

try:

rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
boot

This worked for me ':|
