Enable low resolution video is what we are looking for and one to pick.
I think we will be able to perform full recovery after all.
Start recovery again.
When windows first restart, press F8 continuously to bring up the boot menu.
Choose "Enable Low Resolution (640 x480)". (This will let you continue the setup in low resolution bypassing our refresh rate problem).

F12 - Boot Menu
Thats what I get at the beginning. But I will do the recovery again and try to hit F8. However I will have to do it tomorrow. I have to be at work in 8 hours.
I will hit F8, if you think I should hit Del or F12, let me know.

F8 will open up windows Boot menu.
Del will bring up the BIOS setup.
F12 will bring up the BIOS one time boot menu.
Looking forward for positive results.

So what do I do?

Lets give it a try.
Remove the HDMI cable and connect your monitor using the VGA cable.
Then proceed with full system recovery again.
Tell me how it goes.

I got the BSOD and it rebooted
Did you take note of the BSOD error?
Restart and boot using F8 and choose low resolution.
In your next reply, please post the brand and model of your machine. I assume the OS came preinstalled, does it have a recovery partition?

As for the model name of my machine, it is a gateway. And I think the model name is dx4822-03c. ?
To get the sod i have to do the recovery again. I have to be at work in 30 mins for only 3 hours or so. So i won't be able to do this right now, but when i get back i will have all day to do it. I will most likely shot you a video because i saw something like arsy.sys file, something like that was mentioned.

I will try to take a few pictures of the error, if not ( because it comes and goes really fast) i will take a video of it and post it.
No, you don't need to do that. I'll think of ways less messy.
If you have a few minutes to spare, I'd like you to open xPUD and enumerate to me how many drives does it recognize.
ex. sdb1, sdb2 and so on...
We are particularly looking for a recovery partition (if there exists on your system). Worth a shot.
One other alternative is if you can find/borrow a windows 7 installation CD.
