Hi, can u be a little more specific. Did u install install linux before? Also use another computer to create a startup disk. I doesnt need to be Windows 7, you can download Windows ME startup disk. and enter the following commands in a command prompt; Write back what u did. Good luck.

1) Boot with your Vista/Windows 7 installation disk. Hit <Enter> at the language selection prompt then hit <R> for Repair to get to the Repair section.

2) Select the command prompt (console) and type in the following commands:

BootRec.exe /fixmbr (#updates MBR master boot record...do not run if you still want grub)

chkdsk /r

BootRec.exe /FixBoot (#updates PBR partition boot)

BootRec.exe /ScanOs

BootRec.exe /RebuildBcd

Ever heard of hirens boot cd? It is a very valuable asset to have in any environment. You can download it free on the net burn the ISO to a disc and boot your CPU back up. In addition to that, it has numerous programs from partition recovery (which sounds like would help you) to MBR repair antivirus scan photo recovery etc etc. check it out man if you need some help getting it going let me know. Otherwise good luck!

Oh btw. Do your homework on these programs before you start to run Em on your cpu. And use an external hard drive to save all your recovered data on.
