How to fix EasyBCD->BCD backup/repair->reset BCD configuration ?

I made a rude mistake. Please someone help me
I want to remove Ubuntu 12.04 from my dual boot /win7/ computer. Then I followed a video from the youtube. According to the video I must choose the option EasyBCD->BCD backup/repair-> Re-create/repair boot files.
But I chose EasyBCD->BCD backup/repair->reset BCD configuration without realizing.

I have tried to install again win7 by windowss installation disk. Nothing happened.

windows boot manager is keep displaying

Status: 0xc0000098
Info: This windows boot configuration data file does not contain a valid OS entry.

I also continuously press F8. The result was only loud beeping sound that only stops press shutdown button.

What should I do?

Confirm that the Win7 System Reserved partition (if you have it) or Win7 partition (if you don't) is Partition Marked Active
then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Win7 starts.

Otherwise work through Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

EasyBCD blocked my bootloader

Thanks for your reply. Sorry for my poor explanation about the problem. I'm a dumb about computers and technologies. Additionally my english is not good enough.

But I really need a help to solve the problem.

EasyBCD reset bcd configuration option ruined my Win7. My win7 doesn't start after this EasyBCD command. I tried to reinstall win7 by cd and usb port. But doesn't work neither.

Is there any way to recover my win7 and save my files?

I gave you very specific steps in the post just above. Did you not see them?

EasyBCD would not ruin your Win7 install. You must have run something not indicated or randomly.

Are you able to follow clearly stated steps, which are illustrated by the blue link tutorials? If not can do you have a friend who can help you do this?
