Did you run startup repair 3 times?

If so, you may have the wrong partition marked Active.

Boot PW cd and see what it tells you - free from here - burn the .iso to cd as an image - don't format the cd:

You can get Easeus Pro instead / as well if you like - they are doing a Giveaway only for today

Curious, you have a Primary Active partition - Windows is installed on it - and several runs of startup repair gives bootmgr is missing?

From 7 dvd cmd , type:

bootsect /nt60 all /mbr

Use the letter for 7 retail partition ( as seen by Diskpart in place of ?: It might be different from the letter you see in Windows and PW - press enter after each command)

bcdboot ?:\windows /s ?:

bootsect /nt60 ?:
