If you format a disc with a system file on it and CHKDSK.exe on it. Boot the laptop from it and run CHKDSK/F. This will remove the errors on the hard drive and hopefully let you re format and put your system back on.

A partition that has not been activated can be formatted and Windows installed, disk check etc. but will not boot up.
You can make the partition by booting up in DOS with either a floppy disk or a boot CD and run the DOS command "fdisk" and navigate to Set the partition active.
