I have a dual boot machine with linux mint 18.2 (mate) and windows 7 ultimate. Currently the mint installation is working fine.
However when I try to boot into my windows partition I get a screen asking if I want to check boot or start normally.
If I select to repair the boot setup it shows a progress bar and finishes saying repairs done successfully and reboots. The windows logo shows up and animates. Next the screen goes black and a mouse appears. After about 15-20 seconds the system restarts and brings up the same screen like it did previously asking if I want to check boot or start normally. Can't get past this.
I recently did a system restore before this started happening because my windows system was randomly rebooting (sometimes with a blue screen). After the system restore the system functions properly for a while until one day it just didn't boot.
Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks
