Unfortunately, it still wont go into Windows 7 even with the other drive unplugged, continues the boot loop. I have tried the Windows 7 repair using the HP Recovery console. The Windows 7 repair details looks like it says something like NO_OS as a reason.
I have tried using the commands
bootrec /RebuildBcd - which give the error: requested system device cannot be found
I am thinking of using the HP Restore and just go back to the original HP install. Since this is going to a development system, there will be some programs I will have to install, but I do not think a major hassle. Then we will just use the HP boot manager.

The XP-era bootrec commands are all automated in Windows 7 Startup Repair which often has other repairs it needs to run in tandem. Make sure the Windows 7 partition or its 100mb System Reserved partition are marked Active first. Then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
However if GRUB is on the Windows 7 HD it can corrupt it beyond repair.
I would consider clean reinstalling as do most tech enthusiasts, especially because HP has the worst load of preinstalled crapware in the industry. Here are the steps: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
You can copy out your files to external using Windows 7 DVD or System Repair Disk using this method: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console or Paragon rescue disk to recover data
