What changes did you make in Disk mgmt? Did you change the Active partition without knowing what you're doing? This would make it unbootable.

If so mark Win7 or its 100mb System Reserved partition Active: Mark Partition Active

If it doesn't start then, run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times
