Windows 7: Windows 7 after installation -Always going to system Recovey Tools

Windows 7 after installation -Always going to system Recovey Tools

I am having Sony VAIO CR220E laptop that is running on Vista. Recently I created a new partition with 90 GB and trying install Window 7 Home Premium. It seems installation successful and went to a point Preparing desktop, after that it showed message 'shutting down'. After that when ever i started the Laptop it is directly going to System recovery, not even asking which OS to select , though Vista and WIndows 7 are in different partition.
I had to select the restore C drive option on system recovery and re-install Vista from recovery partition. I can see the windows 7 files on second partition.
Can somebody help me in identifying the problem?
Thansk in Advance.

Hello and welcome Sung - personally mate I would just get a new drive and install 7 onto that and use the existing HDD for an external drive and / or transfer the data you want from Vista when the 7 has finished.

Plus I think 90GB is going to be rather small a partition for the OS anyway.

You didn't need to recover Vista as we could have helped you restore its boot.

Now I'd install EasyBCD (click Download - no Name or Email required) to Vista to add Win7 to a Dual Boot menu.

After reboot if it doesn't offer Dual Boot menu, boot the WIn7 disk to run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times to see if it can create a Dual Boot menu or at least start Win7. If needed you can then add Vista using Easy.
