HI,

I am assuming that your operating system is Vista. if it is not then please ignore that and take it as Windows XP.Now read the following very carefully it will solve your problem.

Grab the Vista installation DVD.
See, if your PC's boot disk got bumped out of wack, you can often fix it right back up using the original Vista installation disk, which comes with a pretty extensive System Recovery Tool that's got lots of options (see screengrab). Set your computer to boot from DVD (using the Boot setting in the BIOS), insert the disc and restart. Vista will prompt you for language and keyboard layout options, then ask if you want to reinstall Vista or repair your installation. You want Repair. From there Vista's System Recovery Tool will take over, and lead you down the road to happy vistages again.
If that fails? Try the free GParted CD

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to accept the solution as fixya..

You need to reformat your harddrive it seems like your boot manager got screwed up. Now while you may ask others here and they may be able to find the error my idea is: You now have multiple versions on your harddrive, your system seems corrupted, you can't work at all right? It's time to rebuild from the ground up.

1. Do you have a "system restore" on your disk? A lot of companies started partitioning a part of your local to do a complete restore of factory settings when the laptop was sent to you generally you start it when your first screen shows. IE You see Alienware, HP, Dell, show on your screen with the intel or Amd logo showing your chip. You then hit CTRL+F11 or F12 generally. You get a simple screen that will ask you if you want to restore factory settings.

2. Win XP and earlier have a built in disk formatter into their disk to help you reformat your harddisk drive. Simply go into bios, again at the startup Alienware screen hit something like F2 or similar, you get a simple screen showing things like Memory, CPU, and very simple looking menus. You want to find anything that looks similar to "Boot Sequence", you will see generally the system for most systems have an order that is generally boot from harddisk, followed by boot from optical, followed by an unselected boot from floppy; generally speaking. Unselect everything except "boot from Cd". Now save the changes, put in your XP disc.

Now as you go through select, new system config, I think you hit R at a menu that stands for reformat. You know you did write because you will get a very bold or red screen at some point saying something like: "HEY YOU ARE ABOUT TO DELETE ALL YOUR DATA ON YOUR DISK AND ONCE YOU GO FORWARD YOU CAN'T GO BACK. ARE YOU SURE?". Say yeah I'm sure, You'll see a generic screen occur and your disk was just magnetically erased. Now you'll see that active partition is gone, choose new partition, and then basically just follow directions. If this doesn't work merely to get your OS Back I would think your Harddrive is faulty.
