    Try inserting your Win 7 Installation media and doing a Repair My Computer. The Win 7 installer should find the mangled MBR and fix it.

    A Google Search shows several suggestions on doing this with a Command Prompt.

    If you can get into the Windows Recovery Environment Command Prompt(probably boot to DVD), you might be able to use BCDedit to correct the entry.

    If you need help, post back.
