Attempt in cmd:
bootrec/fixmbr
bootrec/fixboot
bootrec/rebuildbcd

Make sure that it sees the windows installation and initialize it. Good luck!

Hi,

Use EasyBCD to add the Fedora entry so it chainloads from the Windows bootloader. Refer to this guide:

Fedora - EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki
