Boot to a windows 7 dvd and try repair. It should fix the bootloader. Otherwise you can still use the dvd to return the MS boot loader.

Make a windows 7 repair disc here:
Then tap f8 on boot up and click on repair my PC. Choose the fresh install back to factory settings.

Why anyone uses that Linux is beyond me ;-)

I am only using it to try and learn to fix it lol. I get a few that ask for help with theirs and I can't very well help them if I know nothing about it.


I want to go like my grandfather did. Peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming at the top of my lungs like the passengers in his car.
