Windows 7: Windows Failed to Start - Boot Manager - BCD

Windows Failed to Start - Boot Manager - BCD

Help. I'm getting this every time I boot up my computer.
It happened after I had my computer on "sleep". When I woke up and tried to open my laptop, it shut off and showed me this:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1. Insert your Windows installation disc an restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."
3. Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

File: \Boot\BCD

Status: 0xc0000001

Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

It simply takes me to the same screen when I hold "F8".
So I cannot get the "Repair your computer." Option.

I do not have the windows installation disc.

Please try helping me. Also, all I can do is basically start up my computer and it takes me to that screen every time.

You will require a Windows Installation Disc. You would require another computer to create a windows installation disc. See this: Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create
