    Which means you deleted the 'Boot' folder which contains win7 boot program and configuration (BCD).

    The popular "Boot-Repair" program does have an option to "Fix Windows boot files", but I don't think it can restore BCD because as far as I know, BCD is a restricted proprietary thing.

    Please post what VMC asked for, and maybe try Boot-Repair anyway after re-creating an NTFS partition for restoration of BCD and other boot files. But I think you are going to need the Windows installation disc or a windows 7 system repair disc after all.

    Because you have added wrong repository for Boot Repair. Disable or delete the current ppa (Alt+F2 > software-properties-gtk > "Other Software" tab > remove the ppa) and add the one given on the wiki page that I linked to in my previous post (Install Boot-Repair section).
