Windows 7: help me:Unable to load Windows after using EasyBCD to write MBR

You need to become aware of your disk layout as it's a mess.

I cannot read the labels on System Reserved to see if it is correctly marked System Active. You need to expand the Status column by dragging it's right border to the right so all labels can be read.

What is on D: Professional which is part of a Logical extended partition also containing E: Data?

What are the small partitions to the right of Data which appear to have no content? You should delete all of these and create a new partition there or extend the Data partition to the right. Read how here:
Partition or Volume - Delete
Partition or Volume - Create New
Partition or Volume - Extend

i guess...the right side unlabeled partitions are the hidden partition by the company as in the manual of my laptop its written that the company has kept some unusable hidden partition in order to restore to factory setting...

The factory partition is the one labeled "OEM partition 14.75gb." Isn't this where you said Ubuntu was installed? If so you installed over the factory OEM Recovery partition.

None of the other two small partitions appear to be factory OEM partitions, however you can check for sure by unhiding Hidden and System files in Control Panel>Folder Options>View, then in Disk Management give each one a letter to browse into it from Computer: Drive Letter - Add, Change, or Remove in Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums.

Post back a screenshot of the contents of each, if any, otherwise you can delete them in Disk Management and extend data partition into the space.

If you've overwritten Recovery with Ubuntu then you'll need to rely for future Recovery on the Recovery Disks you should have made when setting up the machine, or order them from maker's Tech Support. You can also consider leaving all of the factory bloatware behind to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is a much superior install of just the OS.

To add space from E to D, boot free Partition Wizard, rightclick on E to Resize, drag left border to the right to make as much space as you want to add to D, click OK. Then rightclick E to Resize, slide right border to right to take up the space you made, OK, Apply. Partition Wizard Move/Resize Partition Video Help.

Since OneKey Recovery wasn't working you can also delete the Recovery partition if you need the space for E. Then you can rely on a Win7 backup image stored externally for Recovery: Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

If you haven't yet done the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 here are the steps to get a perfect one, or to Clean Up Factory Bloatware to get better performance.
