On a Windows computer, you would make sure Win7 is marked Active then from the booted Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots until Win7 starts up.

It will cut any other oS out of the boot until it is added back using EasyBCD 2.0.

But since you're using a MAC I dont' know if it will work. You can try it. Others may know.

Partition - Mark as Active
System Repair Disc - Create
Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 wont' open ANY 32 bit programs
I've searched around and I couldn't find anyone else who had this issue. I updated from Vista x64 today, and when I booted up, almost none of my programs would open. I discovered that is because my computer will not run any 32 bit programs :shock: Anyone have a solution for this?
