Missing operating system" error massage when system starts

Hai,

"Missing operating system" massage is coming when i start my system and i am not able to start. I think because , i had given "mark partition as active" option for one hard dive (E) in disk management when last time i opened. it did not have any data. i did not know, this will make any problem. Now i am not able to boot windows re installation dvd also. i can only take BIOS settings. please any one suggest any way for rectifying this problem ASAP.

Try disconnecting all drives except for your main drive and powering your system back up.

completely power the computer down and remove the power cord from the back then open up your computer and remove one cable from all of the drives except the main one more than likely the top one that is not a cd/dvd drive

Unfortunately, there normally isnt a way to enable and disable drive in the Bios. However there may be someone around here that will be able to spend more time walking you though some software tools that could maybe solve your problem.
