Hi and welcome to LQ.

Please use meaningful titles - "Urgent" is a very bad title. Besides, it is not urgent to us.

plz rply immediate
Please use correct spelling. It should go as follows:

Please reply immediately
Now that the spelling is ok - Never ever write anything like that. You might not realise it but it's very rude. We are volunteers. We don't get paid for being here. You cannot demand an immediate answer.


Back to your question:
Have a look at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tuto...tartup-repair/

Also use google, there are lots of information on restoring windows boot loader

I agree with sycamorex, Never do that.
This is from life experience:
I was on the Python Chat Support on IRC.
I used to say "I NEED URGENT HELP. THIS IS URGENT I NEED AN ANSWER RIGHT NOW NOW NOW NOW!" and they told me that "we would react normally like it is not 'urgent'.".

And time pass, I need help with my code again... I used to say: "F*** PYTHON. I NEED F***ING HELP NOW NOW NOW!". I got banned and kick.

So, As you read my experience. Never Ever do it. It's not worth it.

By the way, you are new to the forums, this is an exceptional. Welcome to the forums.

There have already been 2 links posted with possible solutions. Please visit them and try to solve the problem. Reposting your problem is not going to solve it.

I think both links describe solutions involving Windows Installation cd. Alternatively, you can google for solutions involving Linux Live CD.

you need to reinstall the Microsoft Bootloader
you replaced the vista one when you installed this unknown linux distro
and did not read documents on installing/ uninstalling a second Operating System on a computer

please read the Microsoft link above for fixing the MBR on Windows
