Hello anger51, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes. You could download a Windows 7 ISO file, and create a bootable Windows 7 installation USB with the ISO file. The tutorial below can help you with both.

Afterwards, you could select to temporarily boot from the USB in your motherboards Boot Menu to the System Recovery Options to select to do a Startup Repair.

Hope this helps,
