Thank you for visiting Microsoft Answers!

I suggest that you perform a Startup Repair.
Method 1: Startup Repair
1. Please insert the Windows Vista DVD and reboot the computer.
2. When we are prompted to press a key to boot from the DVD, please press Enter or the space bar.
3. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.
Access the link below for more information about startup repair:

You can also try "Rebuild BCD".

Method 2: Rebuild BCD
1.    Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer. 
2.    Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …". appears.
3.    Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next. 
4.    Click Repair your computer. 
5.    (Click the operating system that you want to repair), and then click Next. 
6.    In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt. 
7.    Type bcdboot c:\windows /l en-us, and then press ENTER. 
Note: C:\ should be changed to the default partition you installed Windows 7.
