You may have marked the E partition active which derailed the Win7 boot.

Boot the Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD, click through to recovery tools list to open a Command Prompt, type:

SELECT DISK # (replace # with Win7 HD # from LIST)
SELECT PARTITION # (replace # with Win7 partition # judged by size from LIST)

Now return to Reccovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots as it will repair the System MBR on C partition.

Let us know how this works as there are other fixes to be tried.
