Here is the short story:
I have a machine with dual boot Linux Mint / Windows 7. I rarely use Windows but sometimes I just need to boot in W7. So the other day, the W7 OS downloaded some updates and installed them while I was just hanging around, minding my own business. The next thing I know, the computer restarts, I am told by a message to not turn off my computer and like 6 hours later I realize that Windows were stuck and I cannot log back in.
I did the only responsible thing: stopped using Windows for about a month, but now I kinda need to work in a Win-only app. So my question is the following:
Is there a way to repair my Windows installation from Linux (my distro is Mint)?
My final resort would obviously be to just backup everything and make a clean Windows install but it would take about 4-5 hours with me doing grunt work to get everything where I want them in the fresh install. I just want to be sure that I'm not missing like an obvious solution here.
