I had a similar problem with Mint Linux & reinstalled

It doesn't take but a couple of minutes to reinstall Ubuntu, so I'd try that. When I had a similar problem with Mint Linux, I reinstalled it and both Windows 7 and Linux came back and worked. I got into my problem by trying to resize a partition I thought had nothing to do with either OS, but when Linux is installed, you can't resize anything.
Good luck.

Reinstall Windows first
by James Denison / July 10, 2013 4:30 AM PDT

and THEN install the Linux. Can you get into Linux now, or boot from the Live CD? If so, run

sudo parted -l

in terminal where l is the small L, not the numeral one. Post the results here.

An additional is to run in terminal

inxi -v 3

and post the results.
