Error 13 invalid or unsupported executable format and pxe-m0f exiting intel pxe rom

Hi, I'm having a problem. Yesterday I was using spy hunter 4 to remove some virus and after the laptop restart, it had a black screen with this:
chainloader /bootmgr

Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format

Press any key to continue...

I was told to use the system repair disc but when i boot the CD, it shown:
pxe-m0f exiting intel pxe rom

operating system not found.

Please help me hurry.

I have windows 7 32-bit

  1. If the laptop has an Intel based Ethernet card or connector of the laptop.

    The intel pxe message is part of the Ethernet card.
    It is used for booting and os for example where it resides on a server and not the local machine. Ie the laptop.

    So you need to go into the bios of the laptop and disable PXE boot for the lan card.
    In other words when you look at the bios boot list the network card is at no 1
    and why you see the error.

    Set boot order list as bellow in the bios.
    1. CD dvd drive.
    2. Hard drive.
    3. Network card.

    Or in the boot order list of boot able devices move the hard drive above the network card it is in the numbered list, as the example above.

    Save the settings before exiting the bios.
    And the system should load into windows.

    There you go a fast answer.
    Panic over!

    It worked but when booting it shows a single line: operating system not found.

    Also, on the error 13 screen, when i press a key, it shows a red colored screen with grub4dos 0.4.4 on top.
