    Problems with bootloader in multi-boot setup

    Hello, all.

    I'm triple-booting (or trying to) on two hard drives: one has XP (32-bit) and 10 (64-bit) and one has Ubuntu 15.04 (64-bit). If I try to boot into XP, my whole system restarts. When I try to go back to Windows bootloader, my system restarts a second time. When I go back to Windows bootloader again, I can actually get into the bootloader, where I select 10 and successfully boot into it.

    For background:
    I followed all of the advice in setting it up and smoothing it out: I disconnected the Linux drive, created a partition and installed XP, installed 7 on the remaining partition, upgraded to 10. Could boot just fine into XP or 10. Disconnected the Windows drive, installed 15.04. Repaired the GRUB via the live USB after encountering
    error: file not found.
    grub rescue> _
    and generated this URL: Ubuntu Pastebin

    When I sought help in the Ubuntu forums, I was told to get a bootinfo summary, and generated this URL: Ubuntu Pastebin

    Can someone help me fix this, please?
