Windows 7: Booted 'System Recovery Options'- now what?

Booted 'System Recovery Options'- now what?

So after a painstaking time of extracting an .iso of the Windows 7 system recovery disk, formating my USB to be like a CD and booting it, I'm stuck. I've the the System Recovery Options screen right in front of me with two options- one is restore my computer using a system image that I've created earlier, which is impossible since I haven't, and another is 'Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows. Select an operating system to repair.' But the thing is, nothings listed below on the table with the 3 columns Operating System, Partition Size and Location. So it says I have to install drivers for my hard disks.

Theres a button named 'Load Drivers'. When I click on it the pop-up window says 'Insert the installation media for the device and click OK to select the driver'. Clicking ok right now brings me to the folder explorer. I guess I need to get these drivers and put it inside my computer, justs stuck on what I need to do exactly. I'm fine hacking around with more .isos and damned USBs, cause I don't really want to spend any money (and it's fun).

The computers a HP Pavilion dv6 something (can't check) and it's dual booted Ubuntu and Windows with Grub. Kinda messed up the partitions while LiveUSBing Linux Mint so the problem occurred of my Windows installation messed up the next time I booted. The status of the error is 0xc0000225.

Thanks in advance, if you need me explaining anything more be sure to ask!

I know people like me are a bit of an annoyance- come and go as we please (the irony) so I wanna say hi. Names Matt, have a bad love for hacking around, open source stuff, Japanese culture and more apparent, web development.

EDIT: Oh yeah, is this the right board for posting this sorry?
