If you just got your comp you may have a windows install cd that came with it where you can re-install. Other than that your best bet is going to be d/l a pirated version of windows and who knows what else along with it. You should have tried the live cd version this way you could just start backtrack and use it without installing.

Did you completely reformat the hard drive or did you unknowingly dual boot? It would give you an option to choose what OS you wanted to start during boot up so I'm guessing that is not the case. From the looks of it you painted yourself into a corner. You can try calling the manufacturer and see if your pc is still under warranty since you just got it. Just explain the situation to them and see if they can send you a recovery/install cd.

Just had another quick thought. This is a shot in the dark however. You can try to d/l hirens boot cd http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ . There is a tool on there where you can recover lost partitions. It may or may not work, I've had it work a couple times for me. Hopefully it can find the partition with your windows OS installation.

if you can accidentally format your HDD and install another OS without realising, maybe messing with hacked copies of Windows isnt for you? there are often steps to take or tasks to perform above and beyond those needed to simply install a genuine version. You might accidentally end up playing tic-tac-toe with some military super computer and unwittingly bring the world to the brink of nuclear devastation.

mother of god, I have never heard of someone accidentally doing this before. But I suppose it could happen. Can you tell us exactly what you did? From the point of download from the backtrack site?

Side note: This is still illegal. If you want to go find yourself a pirated version of Windows, then you're going to have to do that on your own. If you want help recovering a lost partition, then we can help you.

*Face-palm*

I will not spoil this for you because it is illegal, but I will say this, I re-installed my os, Windows 7 Professional since my purchase did not come with a boot or back up disk, I didn't feel like sending my computer off or waiting for a cd, so I went and got a Windows 7 Pro .iso file for free. It is not the legitimate copy of Windows 7, but I added my verification key, and it works just the same, excluding simple irrelevant stuff like Windows Movie Maker, and others that you can install back for free.

Now I shall tell you this, sir; you must not have searched google very much or very well, because my .iso file came from one of the first 3 website hosts.
