How do I fix my Win7 boot loader from another computer?

I installed Norton Ghost 15 and ran LightsOut Restore, and now my computer continuously boots into the restore mode. How do I manually fix the boot loader on that drive, from another computer? I physically have it in another computer and can access it, but I don't know what files to edit. Can someone help me out - in a big bind!

Can I edit the boot loader inside EasyBCD from a computer that I'm not booted into?

I already tried fixing it by running the windows recovery method from the original Win7 dvd console, fixboot, etc. didn't work.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT - What if I delete the SRD directory... will that help any?

Addendum:

Well, it seems that did the trick - deleting the SRD directory allowed me to select Windows 7 from the boot loader, because the program it was trying to boot was not available. Loaded to the desktop like nothing happened after that, and then I deleted the entry from the boot list using EasyBCD.

Glad you managed to solve it yourself. That may help others in the same predicament, thanks for posting what you did.
