    You may have ruined the Recovery partition.

    You can ask the manufacturer for recovery discs, or you can install Windows 7 yourself.

    What happens when you hit F10 ?

    Nothing ?

    Sometimes when you install another operating system, it breaks the connection with the recovery partition, I`m not sure. I don`t use recovery partitions, only disk images.

    Did you try to include the recovery partition when you made the backup image ?

    As long as you didn`t format the recovery partition it`s probably still good.

    Maybe someone who knows more will help out
