First, make sure you are trying to boot from the right drive. Boot from your installation DVD and choose Startup Repair. If it doesn't work, say so, because I went through the same thing. Also, make sure the partition it is installed on is marked as active.

boot into your installation disk, open a command prompt
1. Enter "diskpart" and hit enter
2. Type "list disk"
3. Type "select disk [whatever number of the windows disk]
4. Type "list partition"
5. Type "select partition [whatever the partition number is]
6. Type "active"
restart the computer, and boot your disk again, and select startup repair

1. Put the Windows 7 installation disc in the disc drive, and then start your computer.
2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.

Then enter these commands -

Bootrec.exe /FixMbr

Bootrec.exe /FixBoot

Bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd

After done reboot.
If that doesnt work repeat the above but before reboot type -

Bootsect.exe /nt60 all /force
