Ok are both C: and D: on the same internal drive? You couls always put the vista dvd is and do a vista repair.

Yes win 7 will still be there. there is an app called bcedit that would help you fix the boot menu without repairing vista or do anything to 7. I believe there is a tutorial on using bcedit in the tut section here at SF

do you want to continue to dual boot or are you going to move towards win 7 completely?
