Maybe the hibernation file is corrupted. If you can boot to the Win 7 CD again you might be able to simply delete it. You'll possibly run into some variation on the theme of not being allowed. Any way you can take the HD out and hook it up to someone else's 'pooter in a caddy? Then you could delete the hibernation file, and run a chkdsk.

Failing that, as you say, it's rebuild time. If you have bad sectors on the drive, you might like to think about a new drive - they don't tend to heal up spontaneously.
