Windows won't boot, need installation disk

  1. I have an Asus Ul80vt, Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. Got it off of a friend. It had malware so I decided to restore it to factory settings. However, after the restore was completed and the laptop rebooted, I keep getting a "windows failed to start, please insert installation disk". The problem is that I do not have one and this laptop did not come with a windows 7 cd. Any advice guys? I tried to contact Asus with no success. I now regret trying to restore it to factory settings..
    I keep getting this code 0xc000000e Any advice? Thanks.

    Try a clean install of Windows 7 if it is a legal copy...

    Yes it is legal copy. It had the windows genuine label on the Welcome screen before I decided to mess with it.

    Edit: I'm guessing that I have to buy the window 7 cd?
