If you managed to get Windows re-installed, then simply re-install GRUB. This is a very common predicament. The time has come for you to learn how to re-install GRUB. A simple way to do it is with the Super Grub Disk
. It's a free utility that is handy at times like this. If you don't want to do that, then boot with your Fedora DVD, choose "Rescue installed system", run chroot /mnt/sysimage
as instructed, then at the sh prompt...
If you get a "No corresponding drive in BIOS" error, then try again like this...
grub-install --recheck /dev/sda
If it still doesn't boot to the GRUB menu, get back in rescue mode to that sh prompt again and try the GRUB shell like this...
That starts the GRUB shell which has a prompt like this: grub>. At that grub> prompt, enter these...
grub> find /grub/stage1
grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
One of those will produce a result which is your Fedora boot partition. Use that result in this at the next grub> prompt...
Then finish at the next grub> prompt with this...
Exit the GRUB shell (enter quit
), exit rescue mode (enter exit
two times in a row). See if GRUB boots now.
