- Please, in the future, post code between CODE and /CODE tags (both between brackets [] ). It improves readability a lot. When you are editing a post, there is an icon in the upper menu that that eases to insert that.
- Please, if you mark as solved (with no answering posts), take a moment to explain how/why, so that others can benefit.

Thank you.

According the the script output, you have no Win7 boot loader files on the drive -- which is why it won't boot. If you copied a Win7 setup from a PC that came preinstalled, you failed to copy the boot partition as well -- and it contains the boot loader files.

You will need to use a Win7 installation DVD or a Win7 Repair CD, boot from it, and run Startup Repair three times -- to regenerate the boot loader folder and files.

With some commands in WIN7 installation dvd and
sudo update-grub
Everything works fine again!
Thank you all for the assistance!
