Reformatting windows 7, and now it cant boot into windows at all

Hello, i am have a problem with the same error code 0xc0000225. i took a picture of the black screen if you want to see it for yourself. So its a fairly new labtop hp pavilion g6 - windows 7 home prem oa (no idea if its 64 or 32bit). i had a virus so i was reformatting from the recovery partition after it was done it restarted and boom this error happen. I was lazy and never burned reboot recovery discs and now hp wants 20 bucks to send me them. so i turn to the internet to see if i can get it fixed for free. When i turn the computer on it just a black screen so i cant even get to the repair start up or anything.

(Update) i made a recovery disc from my sisters computer windows 7 64 bit. I can boot from the disc but i ran the repair start up 3 times and it found nothing it says nothing is wrong. So what now?

Thank you

First, try boot into Advanced Boot Options. Then , find the "Last Known Good Configuration" there in the list. Select it using the scroll arrow keys, and hit enter; and see if it works or not.

If not, let us know what happened exactly.

Picture of black screen. I was resetting the computer to the black screen like 100 times to trying to get the F8 screen for the advance boot. But nothing happen.
- i made a recovery disc from my sisters computer to use on mine. But i think maybe her labtop (sony) is 64bit and mine is 32bit.
-SO! i put in and ran the repair start up and it picked up nothing. But i ran it a 4th time it started a repair i looked like it was going to work. It even restarted twice the first time it was installing hp drivers, the second time it was saying setting up windows for the first time restarted and showed windows 7 basic loaded to a popup "install incomplete" and went back to the black screen..

See how this goes>

MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record

It sounds like something screwy is going on. If you get back in BACKUP your data & make a recovery disc.

Microsoft Office (in which word is included) is not a free software. If it came as preinstalled, the price is included there. So I am asking you, if it is preinstalled ? If so, can you post a full screen snipshot of your disk management window ? If a recovery partition is there, it is possible to get things back.
