    Windows recovery enviroment

    I tried to install 8 on a seperate partition and it stopped at 86% on "setting up devices", so to get rid of it i formated that partition and even deleted it but now whenever i restart my computer it goes to a blue screen that says "Windows recovery Enviroment" ....says that \windows\system32\winload.exe is missing....................code oxcoooooo225 and that i have to repair or choose another operating system, i can hit f9 and go to windows 7 but this is annoying as heck, anyway to get rid of this screen?

    The aborted Win 8 install probably added an entry into the MBR. Try installing EasyBCD and seeing if there is something other than Win 7 in the MBR. If so delete the odd ball entry.
