    My windows 7 partition is totally intact, it's on my desktop and VMWare still boots into it fine.

    Holding option at startup does nothing and system preferences doesn't recognize it as a startup disk.

    i haven't touched my partition recently, the only significant thing i've done is install 10.6.5.

    I would check to make sure the partition is still bootable,

    stick in your Windows 7 DVD, boot from it...

    when it comes up click the repair your computer link and see if it fixes it.

    let us know if it worked

    Word of warning. Startup Repair can take a while (~30 minutes), but often fixed the underlying issue.
