Windows won't boot after restore

Post by Finwe » Mon Mar 11, 2013 11:45 pm

I installed Linux Mint (loving it) and, in the process, messed up my C:\ Drive (no file magic). So, I reformatted the drive and copied all the files from a backup I had made of Windows 7 to that drive, but it won't boot. Any ideas/solutions?

You'll probably have to use the windows system repair disk to make a new master boot record then install a new grub loader after that.
