So hello,

I installed linux/ubuntu some time ago but it always had priority over Win7 and always had to boot Win7 manually by waiting and pushing the arrow keys on every boot anyway got annoyed and wanted to do something about it. I installed EasyBCD and by accident I selected that I didn't had any OS anymore as bootable so now I am stuck I can't boot anything anymore without a CD which is home atm and I am not. Can anyone help me?

You basically have 2 options.

1. Use your Ubuntu live cd, boot into that and restore Grub. That will get you back to were you started from. I can give you instructions on how to re-install Grub if that is the route you want to go.

2. Use your Windows 7 cd, boot into that and select Startup Repair, that will re-install Windows Master Boot Record, and you will be able to boot up into Windows, but Windows won't be able to see you Linux partition.
