This is a common occurrence scince Windows replaces the fedora boot..
You need to go into rescue mode if you have a DVD and mount your boot
partition, chroot to that partition and run grub-install after adding :

title Other
        rootnoverify (hd0,0)
        chainloader +1
for booting the Win 7.

hd0,0 may have to be changed depending where you put the Win 7.
