If you wish to do this in the future, get a Hirens Live CD and run the registry tool within it to reset Windows to a generic hard drive controller, thus able to boot again.
Install new Chipset drivers. Done.
Edit: Set your motherboard to IDE when booting the Hirens disc as it's based on XP, change back to ACHI when booting back to 7.
Can attest to this ... this tool is nothing less than magic.
