Make sure you have a WPA or WPA2 WLAN and know your WPA security key. Now, restart your Mac while holding Command+Option+R until you see a spinning globe appear along with a message about the recovery mode.

Okay, so thanks a lot for telling me that. I had a wep network and I just changed it to wpa but when I clicked on the globe, a exclamatio mark appeared on the globe and below it it says apple.com/support and below that it says -2100F. What should I do now?

It's unlikely that you erased the recovery partition with Disk Utility since it isn't visible in Disk Utility.
Turn your MBA off.
Turn the MBA on.
When you hear the tone from the speakers press and hold the Option key.
If the recovery partition is still there it should appear on the screen as a bootable drive.
Select it and hit return.

I believe I did erase the recovery drive :(. It's asking me to use network recovery but this time the error is -2105F, not -2100F. What should I do now? Can I somehow format my 1 tb external hard drive into the drive that my MacBook air is running on and then I can fix the rest because that way I'll have disk utility.
