unplug the hard disk that has OSX on it and then run startup repair.

When you install OSX you should probably have unplugged your Windows drive at least until you finish the install.

you will need to boot from Win7 DVD and press Shift + F10

use bootsect to restore boot sector and bcdboot to restore bootmgr

use /? and /help with the commands for examples.
