Boot up using the Startup Repair CD or Windows 7 DVD. (not the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disk) If you have a Netbook, you will need a CD/DVD drive.
NOTE: Make sure no USB drives are plugged in.
Do not use a USB Pendrive for Startup Repair.

Missing os loader COULD mean a corrupted or missing winload.exe. If theog's suggestions don't solve the problem, open an elevated command prompt (type cmd in the search/run box, right click cmd, choose Run as admin), then type the following command:

bcdboot c:\windows /s c:

Hit Enter.

(This is assuming C: is the boot drive).

Thanks for all suggestions but still the same. I've tried with sfc /scannow but its says something like another System Repair thing must be done, restart the computer and try again. Ive tried again and still the same. Is Reinstalling Windows the last thing because I really need those files I have

ok by following theog steps the things get worse. Now when I boot it gives me a screen which says. A recent hardware or software change have been installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicios software from an unknown source.

If you have a Windows Installation disk bla bla bla

Otherwise, to start Windows so you can invastigate further, press the ENTER key to display the boot menu, press F8 Advanced Boot Options, and select Last Known Good Configuration

File: \Windows\system32\winload.exe

Status: 0xc0000428

Info: Windows Cannot Verify the digital signature of this file
