Laptop boots directly into System Recovery page (no OS found)

Hi, not to long ago my Toshiba Satellite c655 laptop decided it wanted to directly boot into System recovery options. I couldnt recover it because my operating system wasnt found. So i tried a system repair which failed and i just recently tried recovering bootmgr using this tutorial Bootmgr is missing - Fix

Still no luck. Any ideas? Thanks.

If so work through the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start
