This is a continuation of a spyware removal thread here:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic426754.html/page__st__15__p__2495280#entry2495280

I removed the extra partition, repaired the boot record and MBR, and Windows 7 no longer boots. After I get through the bios screen, It just blinks this: "_" forever

I've booted from the recovery disc, and tried startup repair, and it doesn't change a thing.

I gave up ran out of ideas, and installed Fedora Linux as a dual boot system to get it at least up and running temporarily. Any ideas to get Windows 7 to boot?
