Thank you!!

Its not advised for amateur's to attempt to recover your OS from the recovery console.

skip the "r" option and go through to the next setup.
there is an option to repair windows in there which is a hell of a lot easier.

if you feel comfortable using the recovery console then go ahead and do so.
