    You are going to need to reinstall windows on it, some versions may work with a repair but a full reinstall is the only safe bet.
  2. Is there anyway that i can boot from this harddrive without re-installing?

  4. Not to the operating system installed on that disk no, it doesnt have the drivers necessary to talk to the motherboard. If you need to get some data off that hard drive before you reformat it you can try using a linux live cd.
