Default serious setup issue!

Hi,
My clients computer wz full of viruses so i decided to format and reinstall xp home. After formatting the hard disk, the computer restarts to start the setup right? But when it restarts, i cannot boot from the hard disk in order to trigger the setup coz this is what it says: -

error loading operating system.

I did some research on the net and i found this article: - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326676...
The above article tells me that i will have to update my clients bios but the problem is that my client bought his pc from 'TINY' and that company has now closed down.

So, the question is that what should i do now?

The bios is of 'GE fx 5200 vga bios'.

Plz reply asap
Thanks.
