Windows 7: Cant Perform System Recovery

Cant Perform System Recovery

This pertains to my brother laptop. We both have same system spec. He also Dual Boots Vista Home premium x64 and Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Today He wanted to extend his Windows 7 partition, so he went into the thread i had created earlier --> Extending my Windows 7 Partition <--

He downloaded the Partition Wizard Home Edition... And he used it to Partition his Windows 7(His H: Drive). He gave his H: drive alot of space compared to his Vista.
And then he went in to his Windows 7 at boot, and he logs into his account and then he says it stays at the preparing your Desktop part for a while.. he then got super pissed off, and Deleted his Windows 7 partition. he then moved the liike 80 some GB fro the Windows 7 into his C: drive(The vista x64.) he then got super more angry, and he then tried to re-format his computer...

He types recovery manager into the start menu-search thing, and he does the recoery manager. But when the computer restartes to open the Recovery manager part, he says he still comes to the boot screen, and it wont open his Recpvery manager. He then googled some stuff(I dont kno wut) and he figured that at boot up he can hit F11 to open the recovery something. he then tried to do that, and he hit the F11 many times and hard, and it didnt open anytihng. So now we're here.

In other words: he tries to restore his computer to original factory conditions, and it shuts down(like it normally should) But when it restarts it just boots normally, it doesnt boot the recovery manager. he asks.. "Help?!?!"

Thanx all

EDIT: paragraphed... :P

If his data is backed up, do a clean install. If it's not backed up, back it up and do a clean install

And next time, use paragraphs please. it's easier on the eyes.

Clean install what? We got Vista x64 with our computers when we bought them from HP. No install disks came with it... And Same with Windows 7. He got his edition off-of the intrnet. A Legit way though.

Download the ISO, burn it to a DVD, boot from DVD, format and clean install.

1. Reboot, and repeatedly press F10 at the HP logo until the recovery screen appears.
2. When the recovery screen appears, press "Next" and then "Yes" to perform a non-destructive recovery.
3. To perform a destructive recovery, click "Advanced" and then "Yes".
4. After the recovery is finished, the laptop will reboot.

I used easeus partition master home and it worked fine. I don't see anything he can do except reinstall windows 7. Deleting the 7 partition was not the way to go about this. He could have reinstalled and still kept the files that didn't get corrupted by the partition error.
