It appears the hard disk has been wiped/formatted and does not have an operating system installed.
You need to get a Windows Vista installation CD and if the Windows label
on the bottom of the laptop is still attached then this label has the
product installation code.
Boot up with the Windows Vista installation CD to install the Vista
operating software then you need to install the Presario device drivers.
You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB
support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows
drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the
drivers: - www.compaq.com/country/cpq_support.html

When you power up your computer, the system examines the master
partition table to determine what volume to use to boot up the operating
system, and detected invalid information within it. This is caused by
an incorrect or missing active partition. To resolve this issue,
consider the following steps:
Boot up the computer with a
Microsoft Windows 98 boot up disk or Windows XP recovery console. Select
the correct bootup device before you do that.
At the DOS
command prompt, type in: fdisk

Now to check for

The recovery partition is usually hidden and cannot be seen in the Windows operating system with out adjustments to the way the files are displayed. Most likely they are present and you can use the following methods to access the HP Recovery Manager utility. PLEASE NOTE: Using the recovery utility will result in a complete loss of data. Please backup any data you wish to preserve before running the HP Recovery Manager as all data such as photos, documents, music and favorites will be completely erased after the recovery is complete. There are 3 ways to recover an HP/Compaq PC using the HP Recovery Manager. Method 1 involves booting into the Windows Operating System, and starting the Recovery Manager from the HP utilities. Method 2 involves pressing the "F11" key during initial startup to access the Recovery Manager from the recovery partition. Method 3 involves using personalized recovery disks created by the user when the machine was new or a replacement set of recovery disk obtained form HP. Follow the on screen prompts to complete the process. As the machine is has been set back to how it was from the factory, make sure to apply all Windows updates as there will be approximately 3 years worth, including 2 service packs, many critical updates and driver updates.
I would back up my data then delete both partitons and format as one drive.. Thats what I would do.. But dont do this unless you have a copy Vista or XP on CD.. The install files for your system are on your hard drive..
You are missing the file NTLDR.exe and NTKRNL.exe. NTLDR is the first file your computer sees when it is booting up and it brings up other files to get your computer started then it turns it over to Windows file called NTKTRNL which actually brings up the Windows operating system. The only wayto fix is to find a Windows disc and copy them over to three folders that you have either win32, windows or winnt. Copy to all three if you see all three buy only one of those starts your system and it seems like it's win32 based on your error, folder under your C: drive. That will solve your problem and your computer will boot up normally.
Usually (since drive d is another partition) you would boot to it by means of startup, the laptop should say something about, to enter a menu here press F6 or something similar. So when your computer turns on, press the f12, or f8 or f2 keys and see if it gives you a menu (the recovery option would most likely be in there). Beware to PLEASE backup your files before formating and turning everything back to as it was :) . Also, you should seriously consider asking Compaq for a recovery DVD, they are usually free and they are livesavers if something goes wrong with the partition on your lappy.
Buy an XP cd if you are going to do it legally, reboot your laptop and boot off of the CD, The XP installation screen will then appear, you will have to choose which partition you want to install XP on, first you may need to delete the partition currently there, then create a new partition. use the default size because you need to leave at least 8 mb free space, then its just a matter of going through the installation steps with your serial code, location, and other details.
