Ok so I used your 3 try tutorial (Thanks BFK!) the recovery software found the windows partition marked it as active and repaired it. But on startup I dont get a grub menu and still boots right into ubuntu. I looked at Gparted and it says the windows partition is the boot flag?!? ugh whats going on... Im pretty sure the Windows partition is fine I just have to find out how to boot it.

See if GRUB will start Win7.
