It's always better to install newer OS's after older OS's because they can see the older OS and create a boot manager that offers the option to boot to it. Since you've done it the other way around, you can use EASYBCD to do fix that for you:.

Please help me how to use this EASYBCD. I installed it but am getting the following error:
The boot configuration data store could not be opened.
The system cannot find the specified file.

However when I try to load a .bcd file manually as it tells me to, I don't find .bcd file on my entire pc. Please help me to find this file and locate it by name so that I colud manually load it.

Tell you what, let's just do it the old fashioned way. Boot to the W7 DVD and use the startup repair tool. That should fix the bootloader for you.
