Hello crm911, welcome to Seven Forums!

Have a look at Option Two / Step #s One and Two, to see how to use the Partition Wizard bootable CD to recover that 25MB into the Windows 7 partition; skip step #3 as you have the Windows 7 partition already active.

You can also simply delete the 25mb partition in Disk Management or using PW.

Thank you both. Deleting via disk management was sufficient.

You're welcome.

Though if ever you need to do another startup repair to correct boot issues it may try to recreate that 25MB as the "System Reserved" partition if you just leave that unallocated space there.

You could use Method One of this one to create that space as an Extended partition and just leave it as "Free Space" and that wouldn't be able to happen then.
