I recently installed Ubuntu alongside windows 7 on my laptop (500 Gb hdd). In the partition step there were 3 partitions (recovery partition, hp tools, and the one I have Windows on). I selected new partition table, and as a result I got one partition of (500 Gb free space). Then I created a new partition (of 25000 GB, type: logical, ext4journaling file system). The installation went perfectly and Ubuntu is running fine.
However when rebooting it goes to Ubuntu, and I can't find my Windows 7 option in the GRUB menu. Also, I can't find my recovery and Windows partitions.
I don't have my Windows installation on a DVD, it is on the recovery partition. I am afraid that my data on Windows are gone.
Is there a way to boot to Windows without losing my data?
