If you want to try to force repair or reinstall to see if you can overcome this blockage, you can run free Partition Wizard bootable CD which will autostart without user input, confirm Win7 or it's 100mb System Reserved partition are marked Active, click on HD # to highlight it, then from Disk tab select Rebuild MBR, OK, apply, reboot.

If Win7 fails to start you can autostart PW CD or Darik's Boot and Nuke to wipe the HD, which will in turn force the Win7 installer to autostart to try Clean Reinstall.

If you have files to rescue then autostart Paragon rescue disk to recover data .
Well after trying my Win7 iso one more time I got back in... I'm checking to system now, but all seems good!
Thanks again to all, for your help!

Well this is kind of embarrassing , but I didn't actually boot from the Win7 iso disk. As it turns out the disk wasn't even in the player. I'm thinking now it was the connection to my SSD. When I powered on the machine thinking the disk was in, it booted, then asking to go to last good config, so I let go and it's working now.
