If I understand correctly you want to boot into Windows 7?
Ok, the easiest way to fix your boot problem is to get a Windows 7 CD, boot into it. On the first installation screen click "Repair Your Computer" and on the next screen select "Startup Repair"
alright, sounds easy...can I download an ISO image and create a dvd?
Yes, what version of WIndows 7 do you have?
32bit or 64bit?
to be honest I do not know
guess it is not a problem if I try either of them?

Should not be.
If that doesnt work
Just a second
If that automatic fix doesnt work there is a manual fix you need to be aware of.
ok, what do I need to type for the manual one? bootmgr.exe .....
Yes. That would be the one but a little more involved. I like to use this guide everytime I run into the problem (which is alot):http://www.tomshardware.com/news/win7-windows-7-mbr,10036.html
stupid question : can I damage the files I have by using bootmgr.exe? I mean I just started a file rescue. Is it worth it anyway?
You backed up your files? It should not hurt any Windows files because you're working with the bootmanager.
Yes, I am doing it just now. I got you. thx much
You are welcome. Have a good day!
You too, enjoy!
