How can I recover windows 7?

Recently i tried to dual boot windows 7 and Linux. I burned the linux iso to a cd, and installed it. While installing it, something whent very wrong and whipped out all of windows 7 and Linux won't work aswell. I don't have the windows 7 reinstall disk with me. how can i recover my blank computer?


I did obtain the laptop legally with windows 7 already installed. However, it did not come with a recovery disk. I downloaded a windows 7 recovery iso and burned it to a dvd using imgburn. it worked fine but then asked me to "provide a backup image you created earlier". I didn't make any backup images prior to this. Can i download a backup image someone has created earlier? please help!

To recover the password on Windows 7, you can choose a Windows password recovery tool.

With Windows Password Unlocker Professional, you are able to find all your Windows ad usernames and password. Windows Password Unlocker Professional enables you to create a password reset CD/DVD or USB flash drive to reset Windows password. Before resetting password, it will display all the Windows usernames for you. So you can select your target username and reset its password to be empty. The whole process will cost you no more than 5 minutes.
Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Unlocker in any computer.
Get it from
Step 2: Burn a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive
Step 3: Boot your locked computer from CD/DVD or USB
Step 4: Reset Windows password with the burned CD/DVD or USB flash drive.

Oh dear.
Windows 7 isn't that old, so you should be able to tell us exactly where you got it, and hopefully dig out the paperwork that has your Windows 7 licence / serial number on it?
If you've legitimately purchased a copy there should be a way to reinstall Windows through a proper legit' process.

ALWAYS make full backups before doing any major change to an installation.

Without knowing a lot more about exactly what went wrong -- which probably means actually having hands on your machine -- it's extremely hard to give advice on how to recover without reinstalling. At least give us a better description of what happens when you try to boot -- how far does it get, and what happens when it fails.

If you're lucky, the system may just have been left with no partition selected as bootable. If so, finding a bootable disk that will let you make that selection will get your Windows partition back on the air.
