I had Windows 8 pre-installed on my Asus laptop, and then I installed Ubuntu. I couldn't boot Windows 8 from Grub, but I could enter the bios and set Windows as the first boot device and Windows 8 would boot just fine. I just wanted to have it like this.

I installed EasyBCD nero tool and made a mess. After rebooting with Windows 8 as the first boot device, I got the following screen:

Boot Error 0xC0000098

I can boot to Ubuntu but I cant boot Windows 8. I tried automatic repair and fixmbr commands on the command prompt but nothing worked...

Thanks for help

Have you tried booting to the recovery partition on your computer? There may be ways to rebuild the BCD there. Also, I seem to remember some ASUS computers come with the original Windows disc. If yours does, maybe have a look at this. – cyanic Jul 18 '13 at 21:39
EasyBCD and Nero have nothing to do with each other. – Karan Jul 19 '13 at 1:31

Use the bootrec tool for rebuild bcd. At the prompt command, type the bootrec command as shown below and then press Enter:

bootrec /rebuildbcd
