The Vista DVD will get you to a Command Prompt but I doubt that a W7 disk would do the same. When you get there, type each of the following, including any spaces, and press Enter after each one:-
expand bootmgr temp
attrib bootmgr -s -r -h
del bootmgr
ren temp bootmgr
attrib bootmgr -a +s +r +h

Restart the computer without the DVD in the drive and see if that helped.

I have the same problem but this didn't help at all. Can anyone suggest another solution?

When it was busy not helping, did it display any error messages on pressing Enter at any of the stages? Are you running Vista or Windows 7?
