WHY ME!!?!?!? ,, ugh! I feel for you,,,
I would say that your install is fried... dont spend your time bashing your head into the keyboard, it only leaves marks, and the keyboard will break..
Purchase/ Borrow a second hard drive,, make it the master, remove your HD from your pc and put this drive in,, install with your recovery cd,, then once operational and all drivers are fine,, add the original HD back as slave,,(the F*$%'d one) and attempt to recover files,,, once this is done,, remove the drives,
Put the F*$%'d drive back in,, FDISK/FORMAT, Recovery CD... then again, once all drivers are set, add borrowed disk,, with you info on it and copy back to your original HD,, then format the Borrowed HD and return to friend, or if purchased Format and use as a second drive,,
Me is really hard to recover from when the OS has been corrupted,, You can "try" lots of things , but with this particular excuse for an Operating (key word) system,, you are best to restart fresh,,,
sorry for the news mate,,
