Recovering bootloader is easy. Just boot with your Win7 DVd , now choose "Command Prompt" in order to run the desired utility which is called "bootsect.exe". Bootsect is located inside the boot folder so change your directory to boot.
Now run
"bootrec.exe /nt60 C:\" (default position of your Windows partition is C:/).
After that, type
bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot
bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd
Oh my god, thank you! I can't believe you all knew exactly what to do! I guess this is a common problem when dual booting windows and something non-windows. I like this forum. Thanks again!
Oh no! its not a common problem. I am a person with some crazy habits. There are 4 distros on my pc and i have broken them all by my hands and rebuild them again coz i was trying to quadruple boot them with win7 bootlaoder at the topmost priority but didnt succeed. Anyways, thanks
