Recently I had problems because I couldn't boot windows nor linux anymore due the windows boot file being damaged and needed to recover it from the CD, windows boots now easily again but the linux entry is gone and I want it back. Can anyone help me?

To give more accurate assistance, give some details of the type of installs you have.
Which Linux distro?
Was it installed in a dual boot with Windows?
Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Xp or other?
Was Linux installed on the same partition as Windows using Wubi?

What you need to do is get up and running Linux with the installed partition mounted, and then chroot into the installed operating system to reinstall the boot manager.

As buddy215 said in his post, need more info to be of much more help.
