    It is an integral part of the boot sequence that is needed for startup. It is either missing or corrupt. Boot from the windows CD and select 'r' to repair the Operating System. But first, enter setup (F2 key) and make your CD drive the 1st in the boot sequence (before the hard drive). After the repair, remove the CD prior to the next boot, so system boots from hard drive.
