You need to boot from your startup disk and run the emergency recovery program that should have come with your computer.

If the install failed and you want to return to your prior setup, you might be able to recover it with a program called "Reboot" from www.dtidata.com, but you must be certain to read and understand the instruction manual prior to using this program as it has very advanced recovery technics available.
This program will also repair the boot sectors if the install seemed successful but just corrupted the boot sectors. Just select the correct boot partition format (win95/98/nt/2k/xp) and have it attempt the rebuild.

This is not a free program bty :)
