And, did you got any Recovery CD with your Laptop ? If answer is yes , you can use it to recover your OS.

I was unable to find any other solutions for your brand and model computer. You may have no over choice but to do the System Recovery. If you did not keep backups of your important files. You will lose them.


Prehaps, another member with more experience will have better suggestions.

Is your sister's disc is of same os as yours i.e. Home premium x64?
Repair install will preserve your data and user profiles but i'm not sure about the recovery partition.
It may or may not keep a backup your data.
In any case, you should make a habit of backing up your important data as disasters won't knock before coming.

If you have problem with backup.

You can take out your HDD from computer, and go to one friend who have free space on his HDD. Then attach your HDD to his computer, backup important files to his computer, take out HDD and back to your computer. Then you can Recover or do Clean Install without problem. After this, take your HDD and back to friend and copy all that files to your HDD
