basically you need to recover your boot disk using your Windows CD. How to do that is located here. support.microsoft.com/kb/927392 –  AlanTuring Oct 10 '12 at 16:08
    
Pleas don't ask two questions at a time. Recovering your license key is a separate issue and requires a separate question. –  Nifle Oct 10 '12 at 16:10

So basically you need to recover your bootrec using a Windows disc. The entire documentation is listed here.

To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Put the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.

  2. Press a key when you are prompted. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.

  3. Click Repair your computer. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.

  4. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt. Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.

Note To start the computer from the Windows Vista or Windows 7 DVD, the computer must be configured to start from the DVD drive. For more information about how to configure the computer to start from the DVD drive, see the documentation that is included with the computer or contact the computer manufacturer.
