Windows 7: Status 0xc000000f And no repair disc.

Status 0xc000000f And no repair disc.

So what happened was I went to restart my computer, while I was waiting my powercord unplugged (battery is dead so its always at 0 charge) and it shut off. When I tried to turn it back on I get a windows boot manager error stating the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccesible. Error 0xc000000f. I do not have any discs to use the repair my computer option. I have read up a bit and found this website Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life I was wondering if this is what I need to download in order to repair my computer. I also am not sure if the computer is 32 or 64 bit. If I download the wrong bit (32 or 64) and try to use it, will it wreck my computer? I am using my ipod touch to post this so sorry if this is not detailed enough, I just dont wanna wreck my computer any more then it us.
Any input would be appreciated,
Thanks.
*edit* Sorry, I think i posted in the wrong forums, I read similar posts, and they were in this section.
If its the wrong part, I'm sorry.

How much RAM do you have in your PC? If you have more than 3 GB RAM, you're better off with 64 bit, otherwise use 32 bit. What version of windows 7 did you have originally, home premium?
