Windows 7 doesn’t boot after Ubuntu install

I am new to Linux. While installing I was being displayed with only 2 drives - Primary and Logical , I assigned few space from Logical to linux but after installation my logical drive has gone/formatted. Also I am not able to boot up in my primary drive which was having windows 7 on it. But I can see my windows 7 drive on linux.

So guys please help me how to recover my data from my logical drives - I really need it, and I ams sure it has not been overwritten till now.

Also help me to boot up windows 7, It boots but after that I face blue screen of death.

So guys please suggest me data recovery software, as I am a student so cannot afford to buy one.

"Also help me to boot up windows 7, It boots but after that I face blue screen of death." we can not help you with that. It is a Windows problem and needs to be addressed from Windows. – Rinzwind Dec 31 '12 at 12:42
