Are you still online???

Now run startup repair 3 separate times.
Replace your CD with a System repair disk or the win 7 install disk
It should come back with some positive message. then take out your cd and see if the pc boots.

We may need to give it a break for a while for others.
Read the link that I think gregrocker referred to on running repair 3 times
and you should be set.
Since d: is now inactive you may not need to pull it. But power down and pull the d sata anyway.
yes close down Partition wizard & the PC & insert the windows disc.

Did you get Win7 started on its own without D plugged in?

It sometimes takes running Startup Repair up to 3 separate times, as explained in the tutorial I linked earlier which gives the exact steps.
