Fix unbootable windows system

First you will need a DVD with the windows OS. After you boot from the DVD access the “Repair your computer” link. After the open the Command Prompt:


After you open the Command Prompt enter the following commands:

list disk 
select disk 0
list partition 
select partition 1

NOTE: The selected partition must be the partition on which the OS is installed. In order to mark a partition as “active” the disk must be MBR, so in case you have GPT you must first convert it to MBR(use Aomei Partition Assistant).

After you execute the commands restart the PC and boot again from the DVD. This time execute the following commands from the Command Prompt:

bootrec /fixmbr 
bootrec /fixboot 
bootrec /rebuildbcd

Now your MBR should be fixed and you should be able to boot into your Windows OS.
