You ran a Windows 7 repair install or reinstall since this happened and it didn't configure the dual boot properly? This is rare.

Did you make any BCD edits after you reinstalled/repair installed Win7?

Can you post a screenshot of your full Disk Management map?

Start>rightclick Computer>Manage>Disk Management.

Drag window large enough to get full map of drives with all wording in partitions.

First: Have you completely removed the RAID which borked your Dual Boot? Check the SATA controller settings in BIOS: SATA, IDE, AHCI or RAID?

I don't think you should make any more BCD edits as the boot has been thoroughly scrambled by it.

Instead let's take the automated path:

Back up your files and/or save to another HD a Win7 backup image.

Boot into Windows 7, place the Win7 DVD in the DVD drive, Run the DVD either using Autoplay or Setup file.

Select language/keyboard, then Install Now

next connect ethernet cable and select "Connect to Internet during Install" to get drivers/updates during install from MS

Select Upgrade (repair) install. Post back any serious compatibility issues found by Wizard or resolve simple ones.

This will keep all of your programs, files and settings in place while reinstalling the OS and reconfiguring the Dual boot correctly.

Afterward you will need to reactivate at Computer>Properties.

Windows 7 x64 finally!
 
 

Greg, you have more experience than me with the repair installs, but I think in this scenario he will have to run it more than once, right?
I suspect that might have been what didn't work the first time, it was weird the repair install didn't fix it then.
And the only thing I find strange in the EasyBCD pic is that it says "Vista Bootloader". I think there could be some old files there messing things up (?), or is it coming from EasyBCD?
