Try this:
Safe Mode

Startup Repair
Note: You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.

System Repair Disc - Create

Hi Lumpytaco,

1) Try the startup repair options suggested by Theog. If that doesn’t solve the problem, you can also try to run the following commands to re-create your bootmgr file. Each command has to be on a separate line:
expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
del bootmgr
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h
I would also recommend to uncheck the option “compress to save disk space” for each hard drive and partition.

2) You can create a system repair disk but if you happen to be stuck on a non-win7 computer, you can also download it from the following site:

Download Windows 7 System Recovery Discs — The NeoSmart Files

3) Also, check your hard disk for errors. Run this command.

chkdsk C:\ /f /r

Thanks for the help guys
I actually cant get into the Advanced boot menu (tapping f8 once a second right from the start of the boot)
So i went with The download of the recovery discs from NeoSmart Files and am still downloading
Also how do i get into the commpand prompt line without having that option of going into the advanced boot menu???
