Sorry about the timelapse, but I am back now and in reply to the above:
No, syqOO, I was unable to boot into Win7, but I did manage to recover all important files, which was not possible originally.
And,thorkelljar, I downloaded a copy of Win7 from the link you suggested and formatted the drive to reinstall the os.
So all in all, I am happy about the result as well as for the valuable lesson and thank you, gentlemen (ladies?), very much for your kind help!

Hmmm - I do not see my last post, so here it is again:

In that case, you might proceed by steps. You can use a linux live-CD to check that your Windows files are there and readable, try something like the Plop bootloader to see if Windows will boot, and use a Windows 7 backup disk or installation DVD to restore the bootloader. I assume Windows is your first concern, it gives the most trouble if unsettled.

I feel this post of mine is somewhere, but I cannot find it. So here it is again as #3:
