Hello and welcome.

Many computer manufacturers do not supply recovery disks or install disks with computers these days.

They now have what they call a hidden recovery console.

This a partition on your hard drive usaly around about 10 gigs in size that contains the recovery console.

Computer manufacturers usaly give you information in the box on how to burn this to CD/DVD to be used in the future to recover your computers operating system.

I asume you did not burn this to disk?

I have a sugestion that is to restart the computer and repeatedly tap F8 and see if there is an option to repair your computer.Then run a full recovery.

As you nuked the drive you may of nuked the recovery console to.

It is worth a try to see if the recovery console is still there and intact.

This is what you should of done:

If the recovery console is gone then on the above link is attached how to obtain recovery disks for your computer.
