information   Information
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.

Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

information   Information
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.

If you have not made your Startup Repair
Click here: System Repair Disc - Create
Do you have a mate with Windows 7 of the same bit version 32 or 64 & CD/DVD RW Drive, who could burn one off.

Would it be possible to use a windows 7 pro disc or ultimate or does it need to be the same as what's on the pc

You can use 32bit for 32bit, 64bit for 64bit.
