    If u formatted all the partitions u need to reinstall W7. Since the format cleaned out all the information you have on the HDD. So the answer to your question would be you cant just copy the boot files to a flash drive and copy them over since there is no O/S in any of your partitions.

    I hope u had a back up of your files.

    Try phoning the laptop manufacturer and see if they can sell you a Windows disc. I assume your laptop have a dvd drive.
