    I would nuke the drive and try to restore the image using a Windows 7 recovery or install CD/USB drive to boot and the location of the image to restore.

    I'd like to thank you for being prepared enough to have a system image.

    I don't like making assumptions but seems this might be your first time running a beta test with an OS. If you installed over you Windows 7 setup, you'll have to re-install from scratch. If you have an oem ( hp, sony, lenovo, ...) machine there should be a partition that you can re-install from. If you deleted that partition for that as well then you'll need to find a Windows 7 installation CD or hopefully the oem provided you with physical recovery media.

    ​We can only learn from mistakes and errors

    As others have mentioned, your most likely going to have to format ("nuke") that partition and start over. If you have a Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc. There may very well be a recovery partition to allow you to do just this. If you are unfamiliar with how to access this recovery partition, use your smartphone or another computer to Google your computer's model number and "recovery partition"... You should be able to find instructions on how to access it and start the recovery.

    Best of luck!

    Next time create a partition to test preview. That's what I did. My 8.1 is safe and sound.

    When I first started with computers I made similar errors. Sooner or later he'll get it.
