Go back in to the Recovery Console as before and type: fixmbr - it will ask and confirm...once done it will reboot. See if it will boot normally into Windows.

Type in Exit.

It should reboot your computer. Tell me the results.

I'll be back later 3+ hours. Honored

Good. Type exit and it should reboot.

Tell me if that helped to boot the computer...
