Windows 7: Hey guys, need some help.

Well, I shoved in the installation disk, (fun fact: it's a built system and the disc is OEM) and it really didn't do anything except hang around at the dull blue screen with a little vine, stem, or whatever.

EDIT: Well, if I leave the disk in, it takes me right back to the installation, asking me for the language, time, input and whatnot. Is this the right thing to do? Doesn't really seem that there is any backup/rescue-the-poor-kid files.

Oh, I see. I found those repair tools. I ran it, first time it said, "Windows cannot fix this computer automatically" and then after that and for three more times it said "Windows cannot detect a problem", even though it still can't boot from the hard drive anymore. Anyone got news?

Okay, not to be annoying, but it's not actually working.

Run Startup Repair repeatedly from the install DVD or Repair CD.

System Repair Disc - Create - Windows 7 Forums.URL

If this fails, make sure Win7 partition is marked Active using DISKPART:
Partition - Mark as Active - Windows 7 Forums.URL
Then run Startup Repair again up to 3 separate times to repair the MBR.

If this fails, open the Command Line again on DVD/CD to type:
bootrec.exe /fixboot
bootrec.exe /fixmbr
Bootsect.exe /nt60 all /force
Then run Startup Repair repeatedly until it starts.

If this fails, you can copy out your files by running the Win7 installer, at "Where do you want to install Windows" screen, click Load Drivers, browse to your files to copy and paste to external, DVD or Stick. Or use Paragon Rescue Disk to attempt to rescue partition and then files.
Drunk Supersonic, did you try all of GregRockers suggestions? The last part tells you how to copy your files that needed rescued. Good luck to you and Welcome to Sevenforums

Did you confirm the Win7 partition is marked active using the DISKPART commands given above?

Then run Startup Repair 3 separate time with reboots regardless of what messages it gives you.

If it still doesn't start, run the three commands I listed above to try to jumpstart the Repair, then run Startup Repair again x3.

If you have tried all of these steps exactly as given earlier and it still won't start, then you will need to copy out your files and reinstall.
