Only you know what you did to the recovery try reversing it. If it doesnt help order recovery disks from HP, just cost about $20.

Another option is to clean install windows (borrow a disk or download one)- the same edition your computer came preinstalled with, then activate with the sticker key.

Since you have HP tools I guess it's an HP PC.
It looks like Fritz D: has overwritten your factory recovery partition.

HP allow the user 1 partition! How dumb is that.
My preference would would be to normally just get the factory restore disks but with HP I'd do a clean install.

Alternatively do a factory restore/recovery and make C: logical then you can make as many additional user partitions as you like. I've had problems but apparently works for others.

Hello 19fritz92, welcome to Seven Forums!

Have a look at the information presented below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

After you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media; if you can find an exact Windows version that the PC shipped with you can do a clean install using the activation key on the COA sticker attached to the PC though it may require a robo-call to MS to sort the OEM batch-key.

How to Activate Windows 7 by Phone

If you can't find an exact same version, you could use the info in this tutorial to create an "all versions" installer of any version Windows installer, to install using the same method I posted above.

Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create

After you have made backups of everything you care to save, the best method is to do a complete wipe (secure erase) of the entire Hard Disk Drive first, it over-writes everything, all the old Windows code including all the old drivers/programs, giving you the best possible space to install Windows to.
