Boot computer with Linux Live DVD,
open a terminal,
type these command and post its output:

So you have two hard disks and many partitions. Linux Mint is on second drive partition 9.
/dev/sda1:Windows 7 (loader):Windows:chain
/dev/sdb9:Linux Mint 13 Maya (13):LinuxMint:linux



1.Run from Live DVD, then
2.sudo mount /dev/sdb9 /mnt
3.sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda
4. reboot and hope for the best.

Help is much appreciated
I am going to reduce the size of the linux partition to about 50 gigs and make the rest a logical drive I can share between os's if it changes anything.
