Why did u format the disk ?
if you are not clear of how to do it never venture into the area...
guess your system was with preloaded Win7,
the Win7 disk that you have(came along with the PC hope so...) is ment only as a system restore disk. it will only work if you have created a system image or a system restore point from the control panel when you bought the system new...
the only option now for you is to buy a new Win7 disk (bootable disk) full version from a PC shop and use that to boot the PC from BIOS (set the CD Rom to boot as 1st device in BIOS)
only upon that your system will fully get restored.....
the second option is little complicated....(but cheaper if you have a WinXP boot disk)
i wont recomend for that as i will have to go step by step for that wth you.

Ensure that the hard disk is installed properly in the laptop. The drive cannot be formatted before it is installed, or if it's not installed correctly.
Gather the required software. The type of media will depend on the hardware in your laptop. Older computers without a CD-ROM drive, will require the use of the operating system floppy disks. Laptops that can run Windows XP require the installation CD and product key. Older versions of Windows also have disk-formatting capability in the installation process, and the installation media is either a CD or floppy disk.
Place the installation disk or manufacturer software in the drive and then boot the computer. Early in the installation process, the Windows installer has a step that will detect any installed hard disks and allow for them to be formatted. The software from the disk manufacturer will also detect the hard disk and give you the option to format the drive.
Determine which file system is to be used. Windows XP will either work on a NTFS file system or an older VFAT file system. Choose the desired file system when prompted.
Decide whether the whole disk should be formatted or if the disk will be partitioned and each partition to be formatted separately. The Windows installer includes a menu-driven utility that will create hard disk partitions before formatting. If the hard disk is being formatted to replace an existing Windows installation, delete the existing partitions and re-create them.
Format the hard disk with the Windows installer when prompted. The Windows installer will let you know when it is time to format the disk and ask for confirmation.
this should help you.
