    I've had this problem with a laptop before. I used a WinME start up disk and
    did a minimal boot. The typed FDISK and recreated the partition, somehow it
    had got corrupted but FDISK did the trick for me. Might be worth a try.

    You would do well to have at least one boot device on your computer.
    I'd install a floppy drive if I were you.

    Have a nice one...
