Fixing the Windows 7 Bootloader
This hub is simply about solving a problem for Windows Users especially those who dual boot with Other operating systems such as Linux.

I then restarted my computer and it refused to boot to any OS. so i decided to go online and find a solution to the problem. Here's what i found
In order to restore your windows 7 boot-loader, you would need the following.
1. Your windows installation disk (For Windows 7)
That's all. Once you boot the Disk from your DVD-ROM drive at startup, click the "Repair my computer" option. Then choose to repair from the command prompt. At the command prompt, type the following command:
bootsect /nt60 C: /mbr

After that, you're done.
Feel free to comment. I'm open to criticism.
