What makes you think the Recovery partition blocked your Win7 install? Is it a clean install or in-place upgrade from Vista?

If you have files on the HD you need to retrieve, do it first using this method: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then wipe the HD before clean reinstalling Win7 from booted DVD: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

After install, newer drivers will be delivered via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing in device Manager can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for your computer model.
