    What message do you see at the boot screen when the hard drive is the first boot device and will not boot?
    There is no message, just after bios load it seems like freeze. But slash blinking.
    Your responses are perplexing.

    Please try this: Boot to the 7 DVD, make your way to the command prompt option.

    TYPE: bootrec /RebuildBcd

    Let us know what happens?

    Excellent! You answered yes to adding Windows 7 on C, if you also answer yes to adding Windows 7 on D, you should be able to boot to either the old Windows 7 install or the new one.

    Have you tried to boot to Windows yet?

    I answered yes on adding both Windows 7 (C and D), but after restart, again no boot option to choose.
    Even tried to install XP, but after XP copies the required files from the installation disk of XP, the computer restarts to begin the actual installation of XP, but after load BIOS, install XP does not start and still nothing to boot.

    OK ... lets use Diskpart to see some detail.

    Boot to the 7 DVD to the command prompt option. This time

    TYPE: diskpart

    Wait for diskpart to start, then type these lines one by one:

    select disk 0

    select partition 1

    detail partition


    What I need to know is what, if any partition is marked active:

    Partition 0
    Type : 07
    Hidden: No
    *** Active: Yes ***

    If "partition 1" is not active then do:

    select partition 2

    detail partition


    and check to see if it is "Active" or not

    and check to see if it is "Active" or not
    Here is the result: Partition 1 (old windows 7) is active, Partition 2 (new Windows 7) is not active.

    That looks great! You have 3 "Volumes" (or partitions) so please do "select partition 3", "detail partition" so I can see what it is.

    When finished, type "exit" to close "Diskpart", then "exit" again to close the command prompt.

    Well ... your hard drive is correctly setup to boot. There is no software issue that would prevent you from booting to Windows.

    Please again, boot to the DVD and run the "Startup Repair" option. Reboot the computer and run the "Startup Repair" a second time and if necessary, reboot and run it a third.

    If you are still not able to boot to Windows, then you have a hardware issue between your motherboard, BIOS, and hard drive. One last suggestion would be to shutdown the computer and move the hard drive to a different cable connection or plug on the motherboard. If it is a SATA hard drive, the motherboard will have 2 to 4 SATA sockets in a row. Just unplug the small SATA cable from one socket and put it in the next one.
