Are you trying a factory restore option that is failing or is this an image you created? If worse comes to worse, if you have a valid Windows 7 sticker, then borrow a Windows 7 disk (making sure you get 32bit if that is what you had, or 64bit version, whatever is currently on it). If you install it without deleting the existing installation, the old installation along with your data would be saved under windows.old. and windows installs a new installation. From that point you would likely need to install the drivers provided at the manufacturers website for your model.

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!

You could try it again. If it still fails then possibly the C: partition or the restore partition is damaged. Might be bad ram too.
