You need to run Startup Repair, up to 3 times, to resolve this.

If you don't have a install DVD, you can download a legal copy here:

Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River

Make sure you get the same version you have installed: 32 or 64 bit; Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate.

Since your DVD drive is not working, you can create a bootable flash drive.

The easiest way is to use: Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3 | USB Pen Drive Linux

Select Windows 7 from the drop down menu, all the way to the bottom.
Point to the Windows 7 .iso file you downloaded
Select your flash drive (I ran out of room on a 4GB flash drive so used a 16GB flash drive instead).

Once done, boot the Flash Drive and select Startup Repair. Do this up to 3 times if necessary.

Everything else that can also be done is here for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

Make sure Startup Repair offers System Restore or run it manually from the Recovery Options list.

Make sure Windows 7 or it's 100mb System Resvd partition is marked Active. Steps in tutorial.
