Not easy to follow your original setup.

Did you try booting Free Partition Wizard Bootable CD allows user to boot computer directly to manage partition. and see what it says.

Look up vista boot loader its uses easy BCD only with out the commands, its very simple, and very powerful, and i am fairly sure it will run on linux, check it out, vistabootloader, or vistabootloader pro maybe.... dont remember.

I cannot see windows files, it appears to be empty when i use cfdisk in linux distro, this is my story at first i thought the usual steps with bootrec.exe would fix the issue, but it didnt!, the steps i took to mess my partition up. I am a noobie with easybcd, and I currently had grub showing me windows 7 and a linux distro, because i installed linux after and had the grub incorporated. But then i got tired and i wanted to take it off, so reinstalled vista mbr with easybcd and got only windows, now i wanted linux to show up, so i went to add entry and put linux, without grub or anything, didnt check boot.ini,paths,anything, so i reboot, and now i get bootmgr is missing, and i check partitions with my linux live cd, and the partition appears to be empty or sometimes not even shown! i used cfdisk command and got this: 3 partitions pri/log 155gb= this is supposed to be my windows partition, and it says free space, EMPTY Logical/EXT3 20gb= this is my linux distro partition and primary partition 142gb = this appears to be bootable, which it shouldnt cause is just an extra partition with a bunch of files and info of mine... so i would like to write mbr or rebuild bcd in the 155gb partition, but i cant cause is empty!! I NEVER FORMATTED!

That's why you need to boot the app. I posted earlier.

Click the Disk at the top of the main window.

Click partition recovery in the left pane.

Do a quick scan - tick ALL the partitions you wish to keep, OK, APPLY.

grub isnt an operating system, its a boot loader, or a boot manager, you can not burn a disk from grub.

I dont understand why you cant burn it from your linux distro... you say the disk is in the drive, which one? a blank disk? or a linux CD. if its a linux cd are you running a live disk currently? if not you can take that disk out. their are generally cd burning applications in linux, if you are new to linux and looking for a real nice one with a lot integrated, low resource hogging, and simple, try linux mint. it doesnt need much to install, its built from ubuntu, its easy to use, you can get updates and software built from it the same way you can in most other distros, through the software and the package manager. try Brasero for cd/dvd burning.

But good luck with your install, hope all goes well after that, im not sure exactlly what you are trying to do, but i hope it works.
