I cannot get into Windows Vista .... I was working in Vista and then I restarted booted up Ubuntu and when I finished in Ubuntu I restarted this time in Vista and all I get is the microsoft box with the vertical stripes running interminably. I ran sudo update-grub this is the result of that command:

generating grub.cfg
found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-24-generic
found initrd image: /boot/iniytd.img-3.2.0-24-generic
found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.0.0-19-generic
found linitrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.0.0-19-generic
found windows recovery environment (loader) on /dev/sda1
skipping windows recovery environment (loader) on Wubi system
found windows vista (loader) on /dev/sda2
skipping windows vista (loader) on wubi system

I do have a backup of my Windows environment on an external hard drive and I can get to it through ubuntu but I am not sure if I can restore Windows Vista from Ubuntu or even if I need to.

Thanks for any help.
