  1. Do you have a liveCD available? If so we can get you to boot from that and then edit a few things.
  2. No. Don't have a thing. Think i'm up the creek without a paddle. Thanks anyway.
  3. You could just download and burn one. You can even make a bootable USB pen drive from the same download. I'd suggest downloading the latest Ubuntu liveCD image from their site and following the instructions to burn a boot disc or use unetbootin to create a bootable pen drive.

    Then you're in with a chance :)

    Alternative to the LiveCD method is noted here and elsewhere

    See -- "Using init=/bin/bash trick in GRUB"

    Once able to boot to linux, either use Recovery CD to boot to Windows and install EasyBCD
    or fix GRUB (GRUB legacy is easier than GRUB2)

    I've not tried it, but perhaps Boot-Repair-Disk is worth a go -- let us know how it goes!
  5. Thanks to all! solved the problem With format C: and reloaded Windows. Thanks again for your help.
