    You are trying to start Windows on sda5 but you have sda2 marked as bootable ... try mounting the partitions and check which one is your Windows install. You should set that partition as bootable ... did you have a standard bootloader arrangement before you installed Linux or were you using a separate bootloader program?

    If you are still having trouble getting Windows to boot try using the Supergrub CD to restore Windows code to the MBR. You can also use it to restore Grub after you have tried Windows.
