Default Re:

Let me know what happens after this:
1) open a command prompt with administrative privilages (right-click and choose "run as administrator")
2) type:

Now look for under WINDOWS LEGACY OS LOADER. It must resemble like this.

identifier : {ntldr}
device : partition=C: [note: C: drive which contains the Master boot record]
path : \ntldr

If it is not let me know what comes there. If posssible mail me the entire output of bcdedit


PS: I have both of them running, but i have done so manually using William Wilson's method.
