What happens when you run Startup Repair 3 separate times with reboots? Can you please focus on the tasks at hand?

its still the same.
also by running start up repair 3 time, does that mean rebooting and selecting start up repair 3 times? just to make sure.

Yes. Run three separate times with reboots to see if Win7 starts after each.

If not boot back in and mark Partition 2 Active which willl often work when you run Startup Repair 3 times if the other one has been corrupted.

No, once each partition is marked Active, run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots in between each to see if Win7 starts on its own.

You'll have to boot into the DVD to run Startup Repair. Enter BIOS setup to make sure DVD drive is still set to boot first, then watch for prompt to Press Any Key to boot Disk.

If that fails try tapping the key given on first boot screen for Boot Menu, choose DVD drive to boot.

You need to repair the pbr.

From the command line:

bootsect /nt60 all /mbr


then run startup repair.

That doesn't sound good - lets hope the message is misleading.
