What is system restore?

Question

In Device Manager, there are two hard disk controllers. I accidentally deleted one of them. Now my laptop will not boot up to windows 98. I have to use a boot disk. When I tried to format my hard drive using fdisk, I am getting a message that states "no fixed disks present". I did not have a problem with my laptop until I deleted one of the IDE hard disk controllers. Can anyone help me? (Please know that I am a novice, so please be very detailed)
