Can you boot from CDs/DVDs? If you can, thenfirst make sure the HDD is recognized in BIOS. Then go ahead and put in the CD with Windows installer and start the install wizard. It will load the drivers, then it will ask you whether you want to do a clean install, or to repair an existing Windows installation. Pick the later, and do a repair of your existing installation. It will keep your programs, but it will also repair all the system files that got messed up, including the drivers. I believe that you will have to re-do all the updates, though.
