I attempted to dual boot win 7 and ubuntu. I messed up somehow and attempted to redo the install. Yep you guessed it, I hosed it and now cannot get the system to boot in either OS. I have tried twice to used the recovery disks for win 7 but get the grub error.
Here is the result of boot info script:

Any and all help would be gratefully accepted.


Thanks for all the help, I solved the issue. If anyone else is thinking about dual booting win7 and Ubuntu, make a win7 rescue disk first and learn the dos command to rebuild your mbr
Thank you.
