Sounds like you might have to wipe and start over. I think putting the windows installation files on a separate drive must have messed with some settings or something and created a non-booting system. There may be some other suggestion by someone with more experience in what steps you took, but I think you will have to do a clean installation.

Sounds like you made a bootable partition to install Windows 7, which is doing what it should when marked Active.

Boot free Partition Wizard bootable CD, rightclick on Windows 7 partition to Modify>Set to Active, OK.

Then click on Windows 7 HD to highlight it, from Disk tab select Rebuild MBR, Apply both steps.

If this fails, boot the Windows 7 Repair CD to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots until Windows 7 starts: System Repair Disc - Create

If you prefer to use Diskpart access the Command Line on the Repair CD or see if you have the Repair console on F8 Advanced Boot Options

Are you sure you are booting from the DVD and not your B: drive?

Are you accessing the Command Line according to the steps I listed, not using your Install partition adventure?

Follow the steps as listed to return the Active flag to Windows 7 one way or the other, then Rebuild MBR or do the Repairs if required.
