another way to make the partition bootable after copying the Win7 files over is to open cmd and run this:
Z:
cd /boot
bootsec /nt60 Z:
(Z being your partition letter)
this worked for me, what do you think??

Bootsect isn't necessary if you follow the instructions in the tutorial.

As an experiment, I just tried it, I got "bootsec is not recognised as a valid command"

It's not needed , and it doesn't add the boot menu entry - not sure what that post was about.
