SOLVED INF file needed for Windows 7 Home Premium in System Recovery to see HDD

My laptop has been acting up and I want to do a system repair. I've gotten several BSODs which lead to the operating system not being found. I ran a virus scan before the latter and nothing was found. I can get to the recovery options via my usb stick, but when I get there the operating system is not shown.
My only option is to load the drivers via the options dialog box to get my system working again. I say this because it doesn't automatically detect the OS. I've tried selecting a few INF files but none have worked.
So if anyone knows the correct INF file to recognize my hard drive and get my system back to windows, please help. If I can get back to windows I can save my data files to my external hard drive and then do a complete wipe of the drive.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1564 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
Thanks very much,

Put in the system repair DVD and allow it to repair your OS.
