Ubuntu – Windows doesn’t boot after updating to 13.10


Windows 7 still appears as an option in grub but when i choose it, it does nothing and goes back to the grub selection screen. I have tried boot-repair but it's still the same issue. Here's the log from boot-repair : http://paste.ubuntu.com/6468928/ .
