The bootinfoscript shows windows code in the MBR of the first drive where you have your various windows partitions. All the expected boot files are also showing so if you have that drive set to first boot priority, it should boot. Do you still have the boot priority set to boot the flash drive? That's the only place there is a sign of the syslinux bootloader. You could try reinstall Grub to the MBR of the first drive. Some methods you can use to do that are explained at the link below.

I checked the bios of my PC, the first boot priority is set to hard disk.
According to you I tried re-installing grub but as you can see from the codes I have posted, I am using a backtrack live CD because it is the only one I have. Backtrack has been completely discontinued so, I can't perfrom
apt-get install grub
I tried creating a live USB by unetbootin which comes pre-installed in backtrack but I think Kali Linux doesn't work with Kali Linux. So, what would you recommend to my situation?
