I was about to add a PS to the earlier message. Dell used to supply the best back up DVDs/CDs with their Computers. Make one last ditch effort to locate if you have them somewhere. That will save you from downloading the ISO image.

Yes you can download and store the ISO image of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on a Pen Drive. If you can't find the manufacturer supplied CDs/DVDs then please do that and when finished give the feed-back. Rest of of your queries will be answered in good time so don't worry please.

If its a laptop, then most OEM's generally put a system recovery partition, usually accessed by some hotkey. See if you can get to it.
Else Download Windows 7 Home Premium x64 (English version)- http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58997.iso
Follow the below link to create a bootable flash drive.

You can download the iso (Media Refresh) from the following link, and we have a tutorial here for getting that onto a USB flash drive for installation.

It seems that the later thread started by OP has been merged with this earlier one. We are in fact waiting for his input on the downloading of the ISO image before we proceed further about creating a Windows 7 DVD.

Shouldn't we try to repair it first?

Work through these Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot - Windows 7 Forums to make every effort to repair Win7, copy out your files if needed, run Factory Recovery or Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Everything you need is in the two blue links above. Work through them in order.

Once you have the ISO image you have to either make a Windows 7 installation DVD from it or make a bootable USB Stick. The link on how to make a bootable stick is given in a message from EzioAuditore. You may follow that if you prefer to make a bootable pen drive.

I prefer a bootable DVD because my computer is old and the BIOS don't support booting from a USB Drive. The method to do so is at Burn Disc Image - ISO or IMG file. However you can do this intuitively with most burning software.

Once you are armed with one of them (bootable DVD or Pen Drive), then and then alone you shall be able to boot into the Windows environment. If you have never made a bootable disk/USB just take the image to a computer savvy friend with a blank DVD and he shall do it for you easily in a few minutes. The burning speed should not exceed 4 as higher speeds might create a defective disk. But before that please try out the advise from gregrocker and if that works then you may be saved all the hassle. But even if you succeed you should still complete the project of creating a bootable DVD for the future.

Please tell the what course you have followed. Good luck.

Were you able to click 'Repair your computer'? What exactly happens when your in the WinRE (Windows recovery environment) i.e. booted off the disk?
