  dist-upgrade - Windows is broken after upgrading 10.04 to 12.04

Status in “update-manager” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I upgraded 10.04 to 12.04 via the LiveCD. Rebooting the PC gave no
  access to any system, and a screen showing "unknow symbol grub_xputs"
  error. Reinstalling GRUB in /dev/sda recovered GRUB and access to
  Ubuntu. But the Windows entry in GRUB still does not work. My current
  Boot-Info report (http://paste.ubuntu.com/1203471/) indicates that the
  Upgrade-Manager installed GRUB in the PBR of the Windows partition,
  which broke the boot of Windows
