Boot up using the Startup disk CD or Windows 7 DVD. (not the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disk) If you have a Netbook, you will need a CD/DVD drive.
Make sure no USB drives are plugged.

Do a Strartup Repair:
Startup Repair
Note: You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.
Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

If you have not made your Startup Repair
System Repair Disc - Create
Do you have a mate with Windows 7 & CD/DVD RW Drive, how could burn one off.


But IMO, as Linux was install, you looking at a Reinstall.
For help to reinstall, Can you post your specs.

You must mark the Win7 partition Active before Startup Repair will repair or rewrite the System boot files onto its partition: Partition - Mark as Active (Method Two)

Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

You can also use free Partition Wizard bootable CD to mark Active for a GUI (picture) of what you're doing. If you use PW CD, after Modify>Mark Active the Win7 or it's 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred), click on it's HD to highlight it and then from Disk tab run "Rebuild MBR" which may preclude the need to run the 3 Repairs.
