Make sure you dont have a floppy drive or usb drive in the computer first. Usually if the boot order is setup to seek removable media first this is what happens.

If all else fails get an old windows98 disc, select boot from cd, then boot without cd support.

Type in fdisk /mbr and see if that resolves the problem.

Take care!
