[TD="class: postcell"] I have had windows eight and Ubuntu 13.04 dual booting and working fine(using EasyBCD) I had created partition for Ubuntu of exactly 20GB. Some time later, after never using Ubuntu, I went into Window's partition tool and deleted my Ubuntu partition. It said it erased everything on it. I then added this 20GB onto my hardrive/windows8 partition. I also deleted easy BCD. Everything was going fine. I turned the computer off that night and this morning it said
'windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause' File:\NSTAutoNeoGrub1.mbr status: 0xc000000fI
I re-installed Ubuntu from a USB and all my data and Windows system files are there, but I am stuck running ubuntu. I believe all I need to do is find the 'windows8.exe' file and boot from that. Can someone please help here?
My error report for boot-repair is:

Also I tried updating grub using:

My grub file is:
If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update /boot/grub/grub.cfg. For full documentation of the options in this file, see: info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration' GRUB_DEFAULT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true GRUB_TIMEOUT=10 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD ...) GRUB_BADRAM="0x01234567,0xfefefefe,0x89abcdef,0xefefefef" Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only) GRUB_TERMINAL=console The resolution used on graphical terminal note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo' Uncomment if you don't want GRUB to pass "root=UUID=xxx" parameter to Linux GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true" Uncomment to get a beep at grub start GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1" GRUB_GFXMODE=1366x768

I do not have a windows 8 instillation or recovery disk :(
I do have a USB I could download one onto though, I just can't find a website.
I really need some help on this, I have asked on the Ubuntu and EasyBCD websites, but so far haven't be very helpful.
