This question already has an answer here:
Long story short, I installed ubuntu while I was watching netflix and feeling very lazy, and may have lost all my windows 7 files.
-Windows 7 was installed on Legacy bios and I installed ubuntu on UEFI bios
-ubuntu installer didn't detect any other OS on my computer and wanted to write over the disk, so I had to manually edit the partition
-Despite repeated warnings about partitioning windows in the ubuntu installer, I did this anyway, assigning 140 gigs to ubuntu and 500 to windows
Now, my computer won't boot into anything but Ubuntu
-in Gparted, it still shows that I have two partitions, and windows 7 boot loader
-However, I can't boot into the non-linux partition, and boot loader says I need a recovery disk.
My question is does anyone know if what I've done is fixable? I'm hoping that I can fix it using the way outlined in this thread: Can't boot Windows 7 after installing Ubuntu
Thanks for the help everyone!
Note: gparted shows:
