please help with startup???

hello friends
to start with i did a stupid thing which has let me here. yesterday night i got a software called partioining disk. well my problem was that my os (c: drive) uses minimum 100 gb space, so i wanted to seperate it. i knew there can be problem using this software, so i did a smart thing of moving all my material to d and e drive and create a restore point. but it was not so smart. i instal the software n then ran it but the system said its not compatible. i clicked an ok button which i dont remember while runing the software. after that i opened cc cleaner and than tried to uninstal the software(partition disk). this is when my problem begins. my lapy restarted and ask to repair or to start in safe mode

i tried doing repair but it says it cant be rapaired

root case found:

Boot configuration is corrupt

Repair action: partion table repair

Result: failed. error code = 0X490

i tried system restore which says

There was an unexpected error. file name is incorrect

i dint create an image disk.(my folishness)

now i thought of reinstalling the window which i was new at since intially my bro had installed this for me. i was out of i had to do it. so first i tried repair which dint work again.

then i tried to reinstall. now here i was asked for where do i want to instal window???

and three disk were seen
total size free space type
1) Disk 0 partition 1 39 30 OEM reserved
i was geting message that this i can use to install

2) Disk 0 partition 2: Recovery 14 14 system

3) disk 0 partition 4: new volume 48.3 8.1 logical

well i also thought that reinstallation should be done on c drive but as there was no option available and my ignorance, i installed on recovery disk.

installation went ok. n when i restarted it i came to know that now there are two parallel window 7 OS
1) new 1 with window installed on recovery system, and only D drive where my previous saved file are there.. no c drive and e drive(my files saved gone???)

when i see disk management they tell me 116 gb( c drive) and 52 gb ( e drive) partition are inactive. this is os from i am posting this question

2) where still i cant start up and my system cant be repair

please please. i want my original system back. please help
