I did a dual install of ubuntu, probably messed something up on the way as win 7 install drive gave the no os found screen upon boot and grub went into repair mode or something. I got this sorted out by using the boot repair utility through a live cd. It gave me the following url: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1622697
Right now, i have no way of booting into windows 7 and i dont know why. I've tried the sudo update-grub command and that doesnt seem to work.
Edit: it seems that the system isnt recognizing the ssd that i have installed windows on.
Double edit: more details. I used
sudo fdisk -l
and this was the result:

The disk that it should be on is the 120 gb one, but thats saying system: linux instead of windows, which is what i originally had it set to.
