Just to let you know, you can also use your Windows XP cd. Boot into it and go to recovery console and do fixmbr and fixboot. If that is you have an XP cd.

Go tell it on the mountain! I got it fixed

What the error was basically was a damaged MBR. I just ran the Windows CD and Recovery console but any mbr replacer would have worked. Thanks for the help guys!
