Windows 7: HP Pavillion multi-boot problem

Ok if you want to restore windows seven you can do this by following the steps we outlined
The easiest way to proceed is to delete everything except win 7 installation and attempt to repair/rebuild you mbr
If you do not have win install disc you can download recovery cd from Internet and burn to disc, this disc is the same for all windows versions and is not machine specific so you can create it on any pc just be sure to correct version (32 or 64 bit) or you can create cd on another win 7 machine in control panel>backup restore

You will then be able to boot from this cd enter recovery and run repair, you may need to run this a few times until your system boots

Alternatively you can try easyBCD using the tutorial posted earlier but either way you will need to access Internet to download appropriate program/file

Ok, I only have Internet at one house and none at the other, so I can still download this thingy and burn it and I guess I'll be ok. Thanks for all the help. I will try this and see if it works

I'm just wondering or do I have to post this on ubuntu forums idk but I think that some items are missing when I burned it to the cd like incomplete language support and I can't resize the launcher icons.
