There should be a way to do it without renaming the partition i think...

Have not heard of this error or problem.

But since you can boot into Windows 7, the solution is surely to run a Repair install over your installation which will sort everything out - including any possible gremlins still remaining in the boot.

Just run the Win7 installer from the desktop and choose Upgrade install (this is the repair install in Win7). Files, programs and settings will be untouched but the OS will be reinstalled underneath and any boot issues sorted out. Afterward you will need to reactivate at Computer>Properties.
