I used to have Zorin 9 and Windows 8.1 pro running on my laptop, after a while Zorin always did a drive check, and then failed to start up.
I kind of forgot about Zorin, and only used Windows.
Since there will be no updates soon for Windows, I decided to fix Zorin.
I deleted it from the partition, and installed Zorin 16 new along side Windows.
The dual boot will not start Windows. Zorin starts and runs fine.
I have used the windows cd to boot and try and repair start up. It says start up cannot be repaired.
Can anybody help me to get Windows to start up and run?
I spent ages yesterday, trying, retrying, on the internet, on YouTube.
No matter what I did, it always showed an error.
Today, I started up my laptop, first I tried Zorin, it worked fine, I then tried Windows, it came up, something like repairing. I was amazed. After a few minutes, OMG, Windows started.
I have restarted many times, and it seems that both are starting and running fine.
So I guess this is the end of this thread.
Thanks for the replies.
I am sure I will be opening new threads soon, with more questions.
