    "Windows failed to start" after accidential grub delete

    Hi,
    Everything was working fine to me with Dual-boot Windwos 7 and UBuntu 13.04 on GRUB, but I think I accidentially deleted my loader files on the first partition on my single drive "sda1"
    windows is on sda2 and ubuntu on sda3.

    I successfully restored Ubuntu using boot-repair using 'purge grub before reinstalling it' option

    WINDOWS still appears on the list but when i click it it gives me this error :

    "
    Windows Boot Manager:
    Windows failed to start. A recent harware or software change might be the issue.
    ....

    status: 0xc000000f
    info : the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
    "

    my fdisk -l reads :
    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes

    What can I do ? Thank you
