Any recovery option would make me eternally grateful!! Hate when operator error screws me!!
Well were you dual booting? xp and win 7, and you deleted xp, right?
when you dual boot win 7 creates a hidden "boot" folder in the root of the older OS. it needs that to boot. If youu can find a win 7 disk, or if you can get into your system you can add the required files. thats about it, sorry
