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.

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

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