Continuously press F8 after POST but before Windows tries to boot. It will give you several options, including boot to DOS command prompt.

Missing boot manager


You will need a operating system disk or a repair disk to fix it. Insert it in the drive then boot from it. You want to get to a dos command prompt (black screen with white lettering) and type the following commands. Press ENTER after each command.
bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot
bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

Reboot and see if the problem is solved. If not get back to the dos command prompt and run the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

This looks like the codes from a Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD). If so you will need a system disk to boot from and get to a dos command prompt (black screen with white writing) and type the following command:
chkdsk /r
Check Disk Repair will run for well over an hour and you will see the percentage of completion going from high to low but that is normal. Let it run to completion and then reboot.

In Windows XP to get to the dos command prompt boot from the system disk and when the options come up select Repair. Select 1 for the Windows Operating System and when it asks for the Administrator Password just press enter.

In Windows Vista to get to the dos command prompt boot from the system disk and when the options screen open you could try a startup repair. If it fails look the dos command at the bottom of the Recovery Console.

How do i reformat?


You are accessing the DOS command via your OS so of course your drive is in use.

Use the original install disc to reformat.
