RESOLUTION: The above listed solutions did not work for me because of the same reason that cause Windows 7 install error. I have two hard disk in my computer.

4. On next screen select Repair. It will detect the issue and try to fix it and will ask for reboot.

5. After reboot, you will have to repair the process to come to this screen and select repair again. This time it will show you a screen with bunch of options. Select the option one “Fix the start up problems”. It will take few min and show messga that system is fix click OK to reboot.

6. When reboot, remove the Windows 7 DVD and let Windows 7 load.

7. It should load properly.

8. Then shut down and attach other hard disks and reboot. It should work just fine.
