Did you follow the steps as given? If so, you should have not even tried to start Windows 7 after resizing the partition, but booted the Repair CD to run Startup Repair 3 times to repair the MBR which is often damaged by resizing.
If you allowed the resizing to complete, then ran Startup Repair 3 times as given it would have started up.
We help people delete their XP/Vista all the time, then resize Windows 7 into the space. As long as the Windows 7 partition is marked active and Startup Repair is run 3 times it will ALWAYS start up.
Too bad you didn't follow the steps given, or come back for help during the problem as we could have walked you through it. These problems are ALWAYS recoverable.
But i do want to thank you for your input and help. This was a very good learning experience and I am thankful to you for walking me through this.
And my system has activated with the same key. Thank God!!!
