Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
Boot screen says "ctrl+alt+del reboot" no problems in recovery disk

Hello, I recently tried to install debian linux via a live USB, which didn't go too well. Basically, my mbr and general boot sector got messed up completely.

So I used the live USB to re-write the mbr of Windows 7 using "TestDisk" on linux, which let the OS show up in my win 7 recovery disk.

The first time, it started repairing straight away, and asked me to reboot. I did so, and the second time, it went to the list of recovery options, of which I selected repair system (I think thats what it's called... the first one anyway) which did some more repairs, and asked me to reboot again. This time, the repair CD still booted, but said there were no problems and the OS should boot perfectly fine.

This is not the case, removed the cd and I still just get "ctrl+alt+del reboot" on my boot screen. Any ideas what options I have from here?
