    While playing around with linuxmint 17.3, I accidentally pulled out the USB from which the live linux distro was running. When I tried to boot into Windows, it's now stuck in Automatic repair loop, it goes into loop whenever I try to boot into safe mode and startup repair cannot solve the damaged bootloader. I have tried bootrec utils (fixMBR/ rebuildBCD/ fixBOOT) but to no avail. Also I have important data on the C drive so I can't reinstall Windows because "Reinstalling windows without losing all your files" shows an error saying that the drive is locked. I'm currently using live linux, x64 bit architechture. I need Windows back. Is there any way I can fix the bootloader?
