Answers :

Glad to know you can use DOS. Ok, you need to run these three commands in DOS (Recovery console, in XP verbose):
1) fixmbr, this will repair the boot sector on your HD
2) fixboot, this will repair your Windows boot, and
3) CHKDSK /F (the F parameter stands for "fix").
The system should now be able to start normally, or at least in SAFE MODE.
