    I take it that you did not chose the manual setup for the partitioning and formating of your hard drive and went with the default option that installed it over an already partitioned drive. If you did, you failed and Windows 7 is permanently gone.

    How come I get a little smile on my face every time I see one of these types of posts?
    I may have been born with a silver spoon in my mouth but it does not mean I like to be spoon fed.

    @JonJoe: Now I have an even bigger smile on my face. Thanks!


    @OP:Here's a novel idea. Since it is installed to your hd now, perhaps you should start playing with the forensic tools so that next time you go delving into an OS that you have absolutely no clue about, you might try it in a vm or on a usb stick instead of installing to your hd. Or, perhaps, you should just stick to Windows.


    Out of all due respect to the OP though, perhaps you should have started here:

    You need to partition your hard drive..

    Windows 7
    Backtrack 4 (/)
    Swap

    Totalling 3 partitions.

    Reminds me of when I started playing with Ubuntu a few years ago...

    Seriously, read some tutorials on partitioning your HDD, and then making that install. Unfortunately for you, your W7 install has completely disappeared. Better luck next time (lol)
