Boooting S10 ideapad

Hi - don't know where to start. When trying to boot (wondows XP home) the S10, the system comes up with a black screen and the message 'missing operating system'. Have managed to get around that by disconnecting the battery - but where to from here? Anyone out there that knows what the problem is, and how to sove it.  Would much appreciate your help!

Re: Boooting S10 ideapad

your boot settings is gone, you can try to fix it if you have xp installation cd ( not recovery disk ) or by performing new clean installation.

 

or press f8 when you see lenovo logo, then select safe mode, restore your computer a couple of days ago.
