Windows 7: Boot Problem

Boot Problem

Hi there

So I installed Windows 7 yesterday, my previous OS was Windows Vista 64bit, but along the way I have been running into some problems, and I hope someone can help.
Before I go on, I would like to add I have tried alot of different solutions, changing CMD, Bootrec, FIXMBR, I unplugged my secondary HD and so on, and nothing have helped so far.

My problem is that I cant boot from my HD, I have formatted twice, I deleted a small parition of 8gb which had some OEM files on, I guess from Vista at that point, and I formatted my C: drive before the install, both times.
Now I can boot directly from my Windows 7 CD, and it does it smooth.

The following error I get after a boot from HD is this.

Winload.exe
0xc0000428
Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file

if I press enter on this screen, it takes me to the screen where you usually can press F8 for a menu, in this menu it only have "Windows Vista" and the Windows Diagnostic Tool if I press Tab.
If I press F8, it goes straight back to the Error.

I would like to add in the end, I did both try and run Vistabootpro 3.3 and easybcd, but to no avail.

I have added a small bcdedit copy I get in vista cmd http://img165.imageshack.us/img165/619/bootf.jpg
