So, IF you wish you can manage things without sysres quite nicely. But if you're lazy like me and already have it, let it be, its harmless and only takes a corner of your massive hard disk.
If you have installed Windows 7, you have the F8 option installed, or can use the Windows 7 DVD or use the Startup Repair CD

I'm just reflecting issues others have reported.
What would clinch it for me would be if you had deleted the [Boot] folder first so the system clearly wasn't booting. Then ran bootrec /rebuildbcd.

It's a Windows thing or taken from a Windows thing. Part of Winre (Windows recovery environment). Also commonly used with the system repair disk.
