Work with Kaktussoft to make sure your Win7 partition is marked Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times .

If you can't access System Recovery Options on F8 Advanced Boot Options, then you'll need to boot the installer or System Repair CD. Try Resetting the BIOS to defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

Then if required work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which try everything possible leading up to if necessary rescuiing your files to run Factory Recovery or Clean Reinstall.

You might be able to get Recovery to run by marking it's partition Active then rebooting. Of you can try triggering REcovery from its hotkey at boot. What is your PC make/model.

I can reach the system recovery options, but nothing shows up in the box where it says use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting windows. There is another option which says restore computer using a system image that you created earlier.... When I click this option it says windows cannot find a system image.
