Partition Destroyed Or Not ? Can I recover Windows ?

Thanks for reading here is my problem. I have a Dell XPS15 laptop with two hard drives sda which is an ata drive and has my Win7 installation on (which aprears to be still intact (see screenshot)) and sdb which is an SSD drive which I think holds the recovery image (this drive had unalloctated space.)
My intention was to setup a dual boot with Kubuntu so using a usb version of Kubuntu  I got to the partitioning section. From my recollection I choose the sdb and created a 15GB Primary partition out of the unallocated space, after this however I was not allowed to choose this as a root selection so had no option other than to restart the PC. Now I can not boot back into Windows, even running the Windows Startup repair from the windows installation DVD will not fix my problem it does not see the windows installation. I then after some Googling ran the command bootrec /buildbcd which said it had completed sucessfully but did not display any Windows installations. When PC boots now I am presented with a message No Boot Device Found.. Best way to proceed folks ?  Mr Dopey really needs advice here ?
Thanks

Try the free rescue kit from paragon. It can often help in such situations. Also check your boot sequence, maybe you have selected the wrong disk to come first...:

OK update. I used the software you suggest and I think l am-a bit further I can still see all the 0S when live boot into linux using a usb drive. When I use the DiskPART command from within the windows RE and then run the list disk command I am presented with a message that no fixed disks can be found. Any ideas? Thanks

You'll have to load the Disk controller's driver in your Windows PE environment before you can see the disk there. Or, if your BIOS still has such an option, change the controller's mode to IDE or compatible or similar mode.
