Question about Computers & Internet
Try the linux install again. Don't format, and it should hang on to all your files. If you have important files that you haven't backed up, you might want to search for a linux repair distribution. I'm usually hacking someone's lost password, which is a different war. If your bootloader, is trashed, a reinstall should fix. Windows loves trashing boot records, so I'd avoid letting windows anywhere near the system. you don't mention which bootloader you use, so search for repair bootloader + the name of the bootloader or the name of the distribution, like grub or lilo for the bootloader or ubuntu or mint, etc.

SOURCE: Changing Boot Set Up
you need to go to the bios setting, upon switching on you need to press delete to enter to the bios setting (note: some motherboards uses either F1 or F2 or F10 defends on your MOBO) then go to boot set up, select the first boot device as the cd rom then save and exit (F10)

maybe try taking out the cmos battery located in your case, looks like a small watch battery, that will clear bios settings and start from scratch, if there is no battery then there is a jumper sequence to do this
