Apparently, in order to fix this, I need to use the recovery disk from his computer and the repair option. His disk does not have that repair option. I created a recovery disk on my PC, and am wondering whether I can use it on his laptop.
Yes. Any Win7 repair disc is really nothing more than a slimmed-down Win7 installation disc to support only the system repair functions. (note that any Win7 installation disc can also be used to accomplish the same repair... just select "repair" from the main menu.)

And both of these discs are usable in any environment for repair of that Win7.
