Help....... Windows Boot Manager

Hi,
First time here and first time working on my laptp
This is what I have;
Gateway with windows 7 32 bit
Problem; on power up the computer goes to a screen and at the top says Windows Boot Manager.
1. insert windows disc
2. language
3. repair
Status: 0xc000000f
info: boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
So, I hit enter and it always goes back to same screen. I will not let me F8!!! I will let me F2 and F12. I do not have any disc to reinstall windows...... Help

So you don't have any repair/reinstall stuff at all??

Did you move/resize or even delete partitions?

Correct partition is active (at least.. it can run bootmgr). Bootmgr reads the bcd file (bootmenu). In bcd file is a boot entry pointing to an inaccessible partition. May disk signature has been changed, or start sector of Windows 7 partition. Or partition is faulty.

Simple to solve. Just run Startup Repair

No I do not have any disc at all to repair/reinstall.
Have no clue if I moved/resized
I just went to F2 on power up and hit Alt+F10; result is black screen with Edit Boot Options Path:\windows\system32\boot\winload.exe
below that it has another path its very long and ends with Partition(1)\sources\boot.wim

I havent done anything more yet... Do i change anything? or just hit enter?

If you could monitor your partition configuration, that would really help.
But at the moment you can just go ahead and run Startup Repair. If that fails, make a Windows Repair Disc: System Repair Disc - Create

EDIT: To get to Startup Repair, continuously press F8 right after you hit Power. That will take you to advanced options.
