Was re-putting windows 7 in-- Am I correct in saying that you had an error with your windows 7 and you are trying to repair it, or is this a clean install.

What is the size of your harddrive and how much space is on it.

You should never see this message under normal circumstances.
One way that this message can occur is if more than one partition is set "active" or bootable; only one is allowed to be at a time.
It is possible that the master partition table has become corrupted.
