Are you using a linux boot loader like grub and lilo or something like EasyBCD? Is the boot loader not loading? Or you changed some info in the config file? You can use a live linux distro to fix the config file or just reinstall the boot loader.

Thanks. I am using Linux boot loader- GRUB. Boot loader is not getting loaded. I used an UBUNTU 10.04.4 Live CD to recover the data. :bounce: 

The config file is not changed, still not able to get the boot loader in place. Please advice whether re-installation will affect the boot loader. I dont remember the partition name where I have kept Windows 7. So I am not confident of editing config files.
where can i find config files?

boot from your livecd, then use CHROOT to switch to the installation on the hard disk. then to fix your problem run

  1. sudo update-grub
