Hello! So I'm really stressing out over this and I need some help asap. I've been using Plop boot manger (http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager/) to boot into Windows 7 Home Professional x64 with the intention of eventually setting up a dual boot with Linux. While trying to install a linux mint distro from a thumb drive, I managed to somehow edit the partition data incorrectly in Plop.. and now I can't boot into Windows. I can boot into a live linux session, from cds and even into the first partition on the drive which is the Windows disk repair program. The problem is it can't see the other partitions, and niether can the linux session. When I change the profile in plop to boot from the 2nd partition, which is where I'm pretty sure my Windows installation is, it says that the bootmgr is missing. I'm just fairly certain that the values in the partition table are wrong.. Might removing Plop from the system solve the problem? Or are these partition table values standard and if so what would it be for this type of Windows installation? Help!
