windows 7 home premium 64 bit

repair your computer
safe mode
safe mode with networking
safe mode with command prompt
enable boot logging
enable low-resolution(640x480)
last know good configuration(advanced)
directory services restore mode
debugging mode
disable automatic restart on system failure
disable driver signature enforcement
start windows normally

disabke driver signature enforcement is what im using at the moment to get limited acces to the comp, now using "repair your computer" takes me to the system recovery options..... choose a recovery tool
START UP REPAIR... which attempts but fails to repair
SYSTEM RESTORE ... no restore points
SYSTEM IMAGE RECOVERY..... windows cannot find a system image,attach hard disc or final cd etc...
WINDOWS MEMORY DIAGNOSTIC.... restarts and goes to a windows boot manager screen telling me windows as failed to start and insert installation disc etc.... its also telling me \boot\memtest.exe is missing or corrupt...
the support from ASUS are a bit useless,this is my first laptop and first preloaded OS.. i was thinking it was gonna be piece of piss to scrub clean anytime i wanted, although never thought about how i would do it with it preloaded so never really gave making back up cds much of a thought... i have very much learned a lesson this week lol
