Windows 7: Can't get into windows after Linux - need a last resort

YAY !! The Nightmare is Over !!!

I was able to use Bootice to reinstall my Windows 6.x MBR which fixed my booting issues instantly.

Strange that Bootice would do this when I had done the same thing using the built in Microsoft tools from the system recovery disk and it would not work. Bootice 1, Microsoft 0. All hail Bootice!

SIW2 Thank you so much for your help !!

You're welcome - Pauly has done a great job.

How did you manage to run it?

I obtained the 32 bit version of Home Premium from Digital River and shift + F10 worked fine as soon as it started. I navigated to my F drive with cd F and loaded Bootice from the flash drive.
