My friend's laptop can't boot to windows 7 after installing ubuntu 14.04. Windows partition isn't lost. Tried to update-grub still not working. After i checked partitions. System reserved for windows is missing. Any solution to recover windows 7?

Grab a Windows DVD and run recovery/startup repair
If this does not work then...launch command prompt in recovery menu..
bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot

this will help you to restore master boot record...but you may loose linux boot..
