Yes it does mean you will lose everything. you will have to contact the PC Manufacturer to get the media replacement.

Can try a tool like the UBCD or SuperGRUB from this topic here:

Recommended Software for certain tasks

They may help fix the boot. But from the sounds of it this is not a boot problem but a problem with the file system which this wont help. It will require a XP CD.

Yes you would need to back up all your data if you use the recovery partition.

Well I know u guys told me not to but I backed up all my stuff and used the recovery partition on the computer and everything works just great now and it didnt erase all the media programs. I could not find a xp cd. Thanks for all the help though.

No one said not to. Just to have backups of data. Sometimes a reinstall is the quickest solution to problems. Sure you never find out exactly what went wrong but many times it takes longer than a reinstall to figure that out.

Nice Work.
