Some Fast help please :( Windows boot ini gone

Hello everyone I was messing around with xubuntu and I bricked the linux bootloader by mistake and now i'm not able to boot into xubuntu or windows so...

but I did the following: I used an instalation usb of windows 7 to fix it well... it worked but windows boots now when my Windows 7 bootable USB stick is plugged in
so i'm in windows now but my system can't boot into windows without the usb so how do I fix this ?

Some screenshots:
Also in msconfig I can't click on anything on that tab (Photo 1)
and my apologies for the dutch language

Run the recovery console from the installation media...but Windows 7 no longer uses a boot.ini file.
