Asus Vivobook not booting after updating the OS

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I have Asus Vivobook which had a dual boot of Windows 8 and Ubuntu 13.10, yesterday after login to Windows 8, automatic updates took over and before I knew what was happening, my computer was upgraded to Windows 8.1, now the problem is I can only access Ubuntu 13.10, when I try Windows, I get this black screen then the computer restarts, How do I solve this problem without losing my data on Windows?

The steps to resolve this error are as stated below:
1) Start the system using Windows OS
2) Click 'Repair your computer' option at the startup

4) Type the command 'bootrec/fixmbr', 'bootrec/fixboot', 'bootrec/rebuildcd'
5) After the command are executed, reboot the system
6) The system will work with the Windows OS in the dual boot system
