Do you have 2 drives or the usb drive in it?
If you have usb in it take it out.

I have no access to burning cd's. I just would like to see if pqservice can restore my windows partition. In the OS Partition in testdisk there is files in it

The 2 files that I listed earlier you have to go into PQ service and copy them to the empty partition.
MBRwrWin.exe & RTMBR.bin

When you're there in what would be your C:\ drive you need to run command "mbrwrwin install rtmbr.bin".
It will establish mbr to second partition. Press Alt+F10 at boot.
You might have to delete hda2 and make new ntfs partition before copying the 2 files to it.
I'm not sure if you use linux to issue commands. I used mini winsxp on hiren's boot disk and opened terminal.
