The following is a link to a dual boot tutorial for Window/Ubuntu, but it should work the same way for Fedora.

Download System Rescue CD and boot from that. If you need to use Windows to burn the ISO to a CD, you can use Alex Feinman's ISORecorder, or you can use InfraRecorder.

Once you have a bootable System Rescue CD, boot from it. From there, you should be able to run the following
# mkdir /mnt/system
# mount -text3 /dev/sda1 /mnt/system
# grub-install --recheck --root-directory=/mnt/system /dev/sda
This assumes that Fedora was installed on the first partition. If it was not, the "mount" command will fail. If it does fail, post the output of "fdisk -l" here.

Or you can use the WinGRUB instructions that pbaldera suggested.
