"A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart"
If you cannot add Win7 using EasyBCD then you'll need to follow the steps given in Post #6 to convert the WIn7 partition to Primary, mark Active, then run Startup Repair 3 separate times.

It was not marked Active if it is a Logical partition. Convert it to Primary using the steps given, then mark it Active and run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times until WIn7 starts on its own.
