I'm guessing you had a System Reserved partition, C, and 1 or more other partitions.
If you have deleted or otherwise mangled C, you may still be able to do a repair install from your Alienware-branded home premium disc.
Or you may still be able to access and use a recovery partition if the PC originally had one.
Any useful titles on these "resource disks"? Tjey may have a recovery mechanism, but I know nothing about Alienware.
I'd at least try to get into Diskpart and find out what partitions the thing has if you have no bootable C drive.
I'd also go to Alienware support site and see what they say about recovery.
