Thinkpad Windows 7(with truecypt) system recovery failed

Hello experts.

I couldn't do a system update with the lenovo update tool nor upgrade the adobe flash player,
so I went to do a system restore using windows system restore.
Everything went fine(no power outage, etc), but when the comp restarted, it showed this:



No OS listed


Backup not listed



I've tried the following options but it's futile.

It seems the HDD's driver is missing? Because it is encrypted with truecrypt? I'm sure there's a backup image with window's system restore and 2 images with lenovo's system restore.

I've tried knoppix live cd to access the harddisk but they're not accessible, probably because I didn't get to enter the truecrypt startup password?

Recovery partition in HDD is deleted.
I need to access all files in the computer before doing a fresh OS install. Advice please.
