You will need to boot from the installation CD for windows and do a "repair" install

Sorry there is no way around this you really need the Install CD to repair the installation. But the good news is that you don't have to have the actual CD if you can lay your hands on a copy that is the same version you can use that to do the repair. You could even burn off a Work Copy though if you have a Dell, HP or something similar your Product Key will not work if required. But if that is the case you can always buy another install CD from the Maker all you need do is quote the Model Number & Serial Number and they can supply a replacement install CD. This is something that you really need to have for any Windows install as it's so important to have and absolutely necessary if you have a HDD failure.
