The MBR (Master Boot Record) located an active partition, but the partition boot record is damaged or missing. This issue occurs prior to the start of any Windows code. It can be caused by a power-failure while the disk is in the middle of writing, a virus damaged the partition entry or boot record, a failing disk drive or a serious software bug damaged the partition entry (although Windows typically protects against this). This issue cannot be easily caused by any action you performed, unless you turned off the power without going through Windows shutdown.Although not stated in the message, press Ctrl-Alt-Del to reboot.
