Windows 7: Can't boot into Windows 7 Starter edition

Can't boot into Windows 7 Starter edition

I bought a Samsung n130 and it came with windows 7 starter edition

when I booted it up, it let me make a partition with a recovery mode so I could restore

Two days ago, I installed mac osx86 on a usb drive (I don't have an external cd drive)

I installed it on the other partition, the empty one. I was still able to boot into windows

then I installed easy bcd. That's where all the problems began

I restarted it and I couldn't boot into xp or mac, so I booted the osx86 usb drive and installed the mac bootloader.

Now I can't boot into recovery or windows or mac.

I now have the windows 7 rc installed on my usb drive and I can get into windows recovery on there.

I have tried typing bootrec.exe and typing bootrec /fixboot. that didn't work, it gave me an error.

then I typed in bootrec /fixmbr and that didn't fix it, neither did the other two things that come when you type in bootrec.exe.

I have also tried loading startup repair and that didn't work either

it says it's found no windows installations there, but I know there is one there.

So how do I fix this? Thanks for any help.
