The problem can sometimes be with onboard WinRe so repairs need to be done from disk.

Have you booted into the Win7 installer or Repair CD to confirm the Active partition is Sys Reserved (if you have it ) or C and then run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times ?

If this fails return to the System Recovery Options to run System Restore working as far back as necessary.
