Dual boot will not boot

I had w7 and fedora on my laptops HD and wanted to install Mint 17.

Obviously I have screwed something while messing the partitions.

Neither win nor linux boots. Laptop boots directly to grub rescue command prompt.

All I want to do is get back into windows. There is nothing on the fedora install.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Win rescue disc? Reinstall linux side by side and let linux fix the boot?

Ironically I was messing w the partitions I decided to image the drive in case I nuked something accidentally. :-0

Installing mint allowed me to get grub? Back. Booting to windows (phew!)
