This is wrong, there's no 065C5E445C5E2F25 UUID in your blkid output

# /windows was on /dev/sdb2 during installation
UUID=065C5E445C5E2F25 /windows ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 0

and also get rid of

# I addedthis because of s to skip at boot rerror
nobootwait

Wow that was fast and THANKS :D

SOLVED

For other newbies reading this I will explain this from m anewbie perspective (correct me if I am wrong)

/etc/fstab is what the booting sequence is looking for
and
sudo blkid -o list is what I actually have

the problem was that I reinstalled Windows and ran boot-repair which didn't re-assign the UUID from "blkid"

so I simply ran
sudo gedit /etc/fstab
found the inconsistent UUID (in my case /dev'sdb2
and replaced
"065C5E445C5E2F25" in fstab with
E4A667B8A6678A3E from blkid
saved and rebooted - ERROR GONE

Thanks, and new respect for Linux Mint forums - such a perfect and fast response from WharRat :roll:

i HAD THIS AGAIN AFTER reinstalling windows 8/10 and switching my 2 hard disks (asking for trouble huh! :?

and this time "Re: Press S to skip" again, and this time after changing grub a few times there was an obselete and non existent /boot/efi partition with its own UID, and reoving it in /etc/fstab solved the problem,

So perhaps one should look for different uuid's and also NON-Existent ones !!

Good Luck
