Make sure the drive is set to active. You can use a windows 98 boot disk and check it using FDISK

use the CD to boot into the recovery console and then run fixmbr and fixboot.  If that doesn't work, then boot back into the recovery console and run "chkdsk /f /r" and let that run for a few hours.  Take note of any clunking sounds coming from the hard drive.  Then reboot and try a repair.

Check your boot.ini and make sure it's pointing to the right place.
