    You have to have your Windows repairCD or flash or boot a Linux repairCD and install the Windows boot loader to the MBR of the drive.

    Or if your recovery media is just the vendor junk, with no way to get to a Recovery Console, you might try installing the grub config files in a boot directory sitting on a FAT Windows recovery partition. (The eventual link found in the above ...7Bootloader for an XP recovery iso is dead, apparently killed by Microsoft).

    Once you are in the bios change the boot-order (maybe in advanced cmos options?) to put the cd/dvd-drives and anything similar higher up the list than the hard-drive. Then save and exit.

    The LiveCd or Windows Cd should boot-up now. The Windows one probably has a repair option that should help you fix your Windows boot-loader.

    Turn machine on, and immediately start repeatedly typing F2 rapidly. If that does not get you into the BIOS, turn machine off, and repeat trying F12, F10, ESC, DEL. One of those should work. When in the BIOS, find the delay time for boot, and increase it from 0 to 5 or 10 seconds so doing this in the future is not such a challenge.

    You have to boot from a working repairCD or flash drive to fix your system. And that repair disk has to be correctly configured as a bootable device or it will not boot.

    Some computers that get rebooted too many times without a full power down seem to get lost.

    You can try totally shutting down, removing battery and hold power switch (without battery) so deplete any remaining power in system. Then wait overnight and try again to boot to BIOS with correct keys for your system.
