    You need a recovery disk. Ask your manufacturer for one or just get the ISO from the Windows website and put it on a CD or USB key and boot from that.

  • If you don't have a Windows installation disk, you need a disk that's called "recovery disk" or "repair disk". These types of disks are bootable and have Command Prompt tools installed.
  • To do this simply boot from the operating system install disk as per booting into the recovery console but instead of selectingRfor the console selectEnter to set up Windows [version] now. PressF8to accept the Windows licensing agreement and then when it has found the installation pressRto start the repair.
