    help me please

    hi guys,
    i need your help
    I was having windows 8 , vista , and Backtrack 5 on my laptop
    unfortunately , i've removed windows vista by mistake
    and now i can't boot to windows 8
    but i can still boot to Backtrack 5

    please note that windows 8 is in my enternal hdd
    while BT5 is in my external hdd
    and when i try to boot windows 8
    it says no operating system ... because it checks for windows in the formated partition , not in the partition that includes windows 8

    i think that the only way to fix this problem is to change WINDOWS 8 boot options from Backtrack 5 so it will check for operating system in the parition which includes windows 8

    is there any way to do that or fix the problem ?!
    thanks in advance.

    It would install a fine OS on your machine. We from Ubuntu advise.... Ubuntu (shock!).
    Plus your machine would "automagically" probably be multi-boot again.

    For pure Windows help you can go elsewhere.

    no needed to install ubuntu. backtrack is based on ubuntu. Boot into backtrack and open the terminal and run
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    reboot and try to boot into windows. I know this worls wit win 7 but i am not sure about win 8
