I have an iMAC A1312 running bootcamp with OSX and Windows 7.

Windows 7 is giving me grief by not booting (it hangs on a black screen after the Windows login logo).

How do I rebuild Windows to ensure all the Mac drivers are ok?

And how can I recover some of my files from the Windows partition before I re-install Windows on it?

Have you tried safe mode? You should be able to do it by pressing F8 at the boot or just when Windows starts booting. If that loads fine, ther's a problem with drivers.

Is your MAC working fine otherwise? No HW issues?

You could try just reapplying the BC drivers. It could be that one is corrupt.

As jhyiesla mentions, try reapplying the Boot Camp drivers first.

If you need to recover data, your BootCamp disk should show up as a disk labeled My Boot Camp, if you didn't change the default.  Go to your finder and press Shift+Command+C to see it.  You should be able to read from, but not write to, the NTFS partition from your Mac.
