    Booting error "Verifying boot device: cannot find boot device , insert proper boot media and restarted"

    i am having windows 7 home basic installed in my dell laptop (dell inspiron 15R), i tried to install ubuntu 10.4 by making the partition on my hard drive, after installing ubuntu when i restarted my machine and entered into linux it was working fine but after restating if i entered windows and then after i restart my machine then i am in big trouble....i am unable to boot....it shows following error " Verifying boot device: cannot find boot device , insert proper boot media and restarted" , i changed boot priority for hardisk as first from BIOS....but still, no solution. IT seems that control is not going to hard disk....so please help me out, i want to install linux with my windows...

    The first thing that i will advise you to check whether hard disk is properly connected or not. If it is proper then it might be possible that your Boot Partition got corrupted and you need to recreate the partition. Below are the given link for some of the post which is having description for installation of ubuntu and Windows 7.
