That error usually means there is no valid partition information on the drive and that repartitioning and reinstalling are both needed.

However there is a one in a hundred chance that if you boot with a Windows boot disk and at the a:> prompt enter:

sys c:

you may get lucky. Be sure to remove the boot disk before rebooting. You should get a message "system files transferred".

You can check the partition information by entering at the a:> prompt:

fdisk /status

The drive partitions should match what you know you have. You can also try running:

dir c:\

and see if the drive is readable.
