We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
& made the Startup Repair CD. startup repair disc-create
Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?
Boot up using the Startup Repair CD or Windows 7 DVD. (not the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disk) If you have a Netbook, you will need a CD/DVD drive. NOTE: Make sure no USB drives are plugged in. Do not use a USB Pendrive for Startup Repair. startup repair disc-create
