Help with repairing windows!

Well, i decided to Dual boot Hackintosh (iDeneb) and Windows 7 on my HP laptop. I got OS X up and running and i can't seem to repair my Windows 7. The installation disk can't find and fix the problem automatically, so i went to Command line prompt and when i type it Bootrec.exe/scanOS is says that it can't find any installed windows on the disks. I am 100% sure i did not over write my windows partition with the OS X and honestly, i have no idea how to get Windows running again without having to install from scratch. Help?

Hard to tell exactly what you did during install, but you could try this: ( press enter after each command )

Boot the 7 recovery cd.

Go to command prompt, type:

Diskpart

lis vol

find the letter it gives for your windows 7 partition - you can tell by the size. ( I am using ? below - replace it with the letter diskpart gave you for your win 7 partition )

sel vol ?:

act

exi

bcdboot ?:\windows /s ?:

bootsect /nt60 ?: /mbr

It can only find 1 partition, and that partition only has 3000 MB on it. If i try to reinstall Windows completely, it can't find any avaliable disks to install it on. When i go to disk utility on the Hackintosh Install, it can find the 60 gb partition i made for it, and the 400 something gb partition i have for windows. Why can't the windows find them?
