I have a HP Envy Laptop which was shipped with Win 8. Since I am not very comfortable with Win 8, I wanted to install the Win 7 + Ubuntu 14 combination with dual boot option. I have successfully installed Windows 7. After installing Win 7, I installed Ubuntu on the other hard drive (laptop has 2 hard drives).
Previously I had a laptop with only 1 hard drive, and when I installed Win7+Ubuntu on the same hard drive, I was able to add Ubuntu in the Windows boot loader using EasyBCD and got both of them booting successfully. But now, even if I am adding Ubuntu to Windows boot loader using EasyBCD, I couldn't get it work (Tried both GRUB Legacy and GRUB 2 while adding boot records from EasyBCD).
This is the message I am getting when I select Ubuntu from the boot screen.
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer 2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next." 3. Click "Repair your computer." If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

I actually have searched SU and web before posting this question, but couldn't find a solution. I would appreciate any help or suggestions.
