This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Will you be solving it with programming? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Feb 5 '11 at 14:11

Start with the Windows CD and reinstall windows cleaning up the messed up partitions.

You can't boot from a dynamic disk. You need the partition to be active to boot from it. You can't mark an existing dynamic volume as active.

If you have Windows 7 bootable DVD, you can fix it.

I have windows 7 bootable DVD but I don't Know how to fix it. – hisker Feb 5 '11 at 14:22
Hm... I don't have Windows 7 bootable DVD here, but when you start DVD, you will see option Repair windows or something similar. When you click on it, windows shows you options, chose something like Boot repair or similar. Sorry, I can't remember exactly how options are called. I`m sure in one, if you try to back disk to basic all data stored on dinamic partitions will be lost. Take a look, is partition where windows stored also dinamic? – Filip Krstic Feb 5 '11 at 14:32
