Thanks.

First have a good look at the information in this tutorial linked below.
Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
Mark the C: partition as Active and do the 3 separate startup repairs to (re)create the Windows "System" boot files to the Windows 7 partition, this will not affect XP; and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Changed Partition to active,
ran system repair 3 times in a row,
still says recovered, but boots.
At this point, I dont mind it saying recovered.

Unless there's a way to change it, it works now and boots fine.
