How to recover Windows boot option?

Hi, Firstly I'm a noob. Here is my problem giving me headache from 2am til now.
I downloaded Android x86 4.0 iso file and installed it to usb disk using unetbootin. It's work fine in USB when I try it. But... I stupidly decided to install it on my Hard disk. (My netbook only have C drive). I was afraid during installation, so I decided to cancel the operation but I couldn't. At "Do you want to create boot item for windows?" I foolishly choose NO! . Now... after reboot, GRUB boot option show me only two. Android x86 and Android x86 (debug). Now I can't use my netbook anymore. That's a BIG problem for me. I can't work now. Please help me. I will do everything. :'(

You can use this boot media.

A23x86.iso


Boot it up. and use nt6repair ( it is on the desktop you see when you have booted the media)

Hi, thank you so much dude. But currently I can't use PC right now. So I can't use Power ISO too. I only have smartphone. Can I just extract that .iso to USB disk, then boot from it?

You can if the usb stick is formatted correctly, including the bootsector.

Try it and see.
