If Win7 Startup Repair will not write the MBR to Win7 when run three separate times with reboots, then you need to mark it Active first.
Boot into DVD Repair console, click through to Recovery Tools list, open a Command Line, type:
SELECT DISK # (replace # with Win7 HD)
SELECT PARTITION # (for Win7 partition)
Now return to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots, as it will try to repair and then write the MBR to Win7 which was previously on Vista partition.
