7 is not working after dual boot with ubuntu

i have dual boot windows 7 with ubuntu, but after that ubuntu run well but it is not displaying any drive. then i restart windows,
it shows 5 boot option 2 of ubuntu, 2 of memtest, and 1 of windows 7 loader(on\devsda2\) something. when i click on it
it shows 2 option:
1. launch startup repair
2. start window normally
when i click on " start window normally" it restart after displaying a blue screen for 1 second.
launch startup repair is also not working.

then i finally decided to start a fresh copy of windows 7, but on partition manager it shows no drive when i boot it from windows 7 DVD.

help me to correct this problem without any data loss.

Hello vikrantsjs.



The first thing to do would be to make backups of the data you need to save to external media using the method out-lined in this tutorial at the link below, it works very well, I've used it myself.

Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Boot from the Windows DVD and Select Launch Startup Repair.

If it still doesnt work then, Boot from the windows DVD and enter the recovery environment.
Open command prompt and type the following commands.

Code:
bootrec /rebuildbcd
bootrec /fixboot
bootrec /fixmbr
Remove the DVD and restart your computer.
