I tried installing win 8 and had to cancel the setup at a point. And now when I start my pc an error comes up like:

Find --set_root- --ignore floppies-.../bootmgr
Error 15: file not found
Press any key to continue...

And when I press a key it goes to the red grub4dos menu, and there are a lot of options there, but I have no idea what to do. I have win 7 installed but don't know how to boot it. I am totally new to grub. Please help me solve this. Thank you.
