Used TestDisk and now I can't get in to Windows

Ok let me start from the very beginning. First off, I am horrible with technical stuff on the computer and because of that I am feeling pretty dumb right now because I tried to use TestDisk without knowing fully what it means or does. My goal was to recover files I had on an unallocated hard drive in my computer. When I upgraded from Vista about a year ago I made it so my computer doesn't use my old hard drive (I got a new one, 1tb Western Digital). I didn't need any of the files on it at the time so I didn't think anything of it. I need the files now but that's not the main issue I am having. Well so I ran TestDisk in the cmd prompt and clicked some stuff I thought was taking me in the right direction. I think it was a deep scan I did on one of my hard drives and then 4 hours later when it completed it told me I needed to reboot and to press y/n to confirm. I confirmed, turned my computer back on and it gave me an error 0xc000000f or something and said that there was an error booting. So I got my windows 7 installation disk, booted off that, tried to repair, it repaired, it restarted and now it's just bringing me to a "system recovery options" page every hard drive I boot off of.
