Question HD swap Issues

Working on a Toshiba laptop w/ Windows 7 on it and the Hard drive crashed. I was able to repair a few of the sectors in order to clone it to the new HD. However, now it still won't boot up and says that it can't find a device. I'm trying to get it back to factory settings, but my buddy didn't burn the recovery disks! I was able to copy the "Toshiba Recovery Media Creator" folder over to my external HD, but not sure how or what to burn to get the recovery disks. So two questions... Any ideas how to get this fixed w/o restoring? If, I must restore, what file(s) should I burn to a disk? (no ISO's) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you'd like to recover most of the HDD I'd recommend this:
