    Exclamation Can't boot into Windows 7 after removed Fedora to be replaced with Ubuntu

    I just removed Fedora 16 with gparted on an Ubuntu 12.04 LiveUSB. I removed partitions /dev/sda3, 4, and 5, leaving behind the 2 NTFS partitions. There is now a big chunk of free space. I then went to install 12.04 on that free space. It didn't give me the option to do a side-by-side install of 12.04 and Windows 7, just Replace Windows 7 with Ubuntu. I've come across this problem before, so I tried to boot into Windows 7. It just gave me a GRUB error and no options but a grub-rescue CLI. I tried to install 12.04 from the LiveUSB again, but it wouldn't get past the step with the 3 checkmarks and to install extra software, etc. HELP!!!!!
