I tried Windows 8 Consumer Preview a couple months ago and it wiped out my partition table... or the boot information.
So now the machine cannot boot to anything at all. Is there Ubuntu tools or Linux tools that can fix all the partitions and make them boot again? (The partitions have Windows 7 and Vista on them. I run Ubuntu as a VM on Win 7). I tried another tool running on Vista and was able to see the Win 7 partition, except that tool wiped out the Vista boot info later on.
update: per @mlt's request, this is what
fdisk -l says;
