recover deleted windows boot partition
I had a dual boot of windows 7 and ubuntu, I accidently deleted the wrong partition and after rebooting I realised I deleted the windows boot partition.
I went back into Ubuntu and tried to recover the partitions using testdisk but it doesn't find all the right partitions. After browsing the files on the main primary partition I found that I had copied my boot partition files into another folder - I must have thought one day I mght accidently do asomething stupid and how right I was.
Is it possible to make an image of those boot files to boot from? Or to create a new bootable partition on the disk to put these files into? Or just to stick to trying to recover the deleted partition with testdisk in Ubuntu?
I'd like to avoid reinstalling everything if I possibly can.
I've spent hours looking at posts on different windows and linux forums for ideas and options. All help is welcome.
