Hello Riley, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Doing a startup repair on the Vista drive or partition may be able to restore it for you.

Afterwards, these tutorials below may be useful if you get a "recovered" name added to the OS in the Windows Boot Manager, or would like to change which OS you have startup by default.

Dual Boot - Change OS Name in Windows Boot Manager

and

Default Operating System - Change Default Boot OS

Hope this helps,
Shawn

In the tutorial, you will see that you can do this from booting from your Vista installation DVD to run the Startup Repair to add Vista back. Afterwards, you can use the other tutorials to adjust as needed if you wanted to.
