Resolved - Well not really read on
Perhaps this was an obvious screw up. It appears that the original problem stemmed from installing Win 7 into an existing formatted non active partition. I was installing Win 7 into this previously formatted partition. I made it active and that was a bit of mistake because I could no longer boot Vista either. I tried to get the active partition to boot using BootRec at the command line with no luck.
Deleted the Win 7 partition and installed Win 7 into the free non-formatted space.
Repaired Vista boot using my 32 bit Vista disk. I guess I had messed up my Vista boot record on that partition with all of the repair attempts I had made. Not sure why I was getting "no system..." message ( I also did a system restore on my Vista partition to earlier in the day hoping to make the VISTA partition active)
Restarted and Win 7 setup completed
I can now start up Win 7 64 or Vista x86 on my raid drive.
BUT Wait - Only if if have the Vista 32 cd in the drive and I let the it time out to not start from the CD. If the CD is not in the drive it will not start... No system
I am tired I am taking a break
