    GPT Boot sector trashed


    I have a HP p5-2120 computer with a 1000 GB hard drive using a GPT table. Windows 7 64 bit was pre-installed. I installed Fedora 17 last Saturday, but when I rebooted (per instructions) I got this message:

    ERROR: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed

    I used Puppy Linux to look into the various partitions. In sda1, the Windows boot partition I saw that the following two files were modified as a result of installing Fedora 17:
    /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/BCD
    /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/BCD.LOG

    I have been unable to read the contents of these files.
    I'm attaching a copy of /boot/grub2/grub.cfg because I don't know whether grub2 was installed properly or the mount points for Windows or Linux are correct.
