How do I repair my new Windows 8.1 laptop?

It came with Windows 8.1 installed, and I wanted to rollback to Windows 7. Before realizing I should've converted the disk from GPT to MBR, I tried a "custom install" of windows 7, and started formatting partitions. When the install didn't go through (due to the fact it's GPT, not MBR) it left me with a useless laptop. It can't restore to factory settings, and I have no disk.

Wish i converted it to MBR first before formatting partitions...but, any help?

What is the make and model of your new laptop? There are Drivers to consider as well as the Op System. Are you needing DVD disk for W8.1?
