Windows 7: Deleted win 7 os in easybcd and now I can't boot

Deleted win 7 os in easybcd and now I can't boot

I had 3 OS in boot screen and using easybcd I deleted all 3 including the default which is win 7. I though it wouldn't be a problem but now I can't boot to win 7. All I wanted to do was to get rid of the boot screen in order to have the machine boot faster. The message was this:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer
2. Choose your language settings and then click "next"
3. Click "repair your computer"

File: \Boot\BCD
status: 0xc0000098
Info: The Windows Boot Configuration Data file does not contain a valid OS entry.

I'm guessing you don't have a Windows DVD?

How many OS do you have installed?

Are you referring to the SATA drivers for you hard drive to be recognized?
I've never use a recovery disk but I would have thought it would include the drivers.

Can you borrow someone's Windows 7 DVD for the same bit (32bit, 64bit) as you have installed?

EDIT: Ok I was to slow. How did you fix it, it may help someone else.

DVD repair offered the automated repair or you selected Startup Repair?

These are available from F8, DVD or Repair CD System Recovery Options.
