Actually you need Startup Repair if WIn7 won't start.

Make sure the Win7 or it's 100mb System Reserved boot partition is marked Active first: Partition - Mark as Active (Method Two)

If there's a driver that's blocking it from starting it might also be remedied by plugging the HD in and booting into Paragon Adaptive Restore CD to run P2P Adjust on the OS to adjust it to boot on any hardware.

It could take a small bit of time to recognize the usb mouse and keyboard. Leave it there for a couple of minutes

Ive seen some take up to 15 minutes even on high end pc's. It can just take a while to load the driver's. Does it work in BIOS?

Try safe mode with networking. Check device manager

Wait, it works now, i may run into the CLASSPNP.SYS problem again, because Startup Repair did NOT fix it.

Will keep you posted.
