Anyway my brother is coming home tomorrow, so hopefully he can do something
He hasn't come home yet, buy he is going to take a look and see what he can do.
And soneone ask me before about my AV. It wad AVG, people on forum told me not to use it anymore, but I never listen, I guess now i won't

Why do you think there's no OS on the System? Did you delete it? If so use Partition Wizard bootable CD Partition Recovery Wizard.

If you didn't delete it but it's just not showing up for repair then follow the steps I gave you to see if you can get it to show up for repair.

When you browse with the DVD to find your files, does it see a Windows folder?

Since you seem to have forgotten how to do a clean reinstall since I helped you do several a year or two ago, read up here: Reinstalling Windows 7

Use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Dear Mitch,
In one of your early replies you mentioned that there are music and Photos on the Drive which i surmise you do not mind losing. This seems to be the for not taking backups and not buying an External Hard disk. IMO, investing on an External Drive is worth it's weight in Gold!

Forgive me for asking whether you know how to do a clean install. If you're unsure as to go about it, look up these websites on a friend's PC: Windows 7 installation how-to, step by step - Computerworld and Install Windows 7: The Ultimate Step-by Step Guide Take a printout
as to how to proceed with the installation. The second website is easy to understand.
While installing create at least 3 Drives. Keep the music and photos on the D drive, so that you can take a Backup and Restore on the 3rd drive or the external Hard drive (which you'll be buying),using the free version of MACRIUM REFLECT:macrium.com/ReflectFree.asp

Ok.
So my brother has came home and fixed my problem.
I wasnt there to see how he fixed it but he did tell me, so i will try my best to tell you guys.

I think he said, that he installed a copy of Windows onto his external hard drive, He was then able to find my data, and so he copied them to the drive as well. He then formatted the hard drive, installed Windows Vista on it, then put 7 on it. And thats how he did it ( i think..)

It isn't necessary to install Vista first to use Upgrade version of Windows 7: Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version
