reboot vista and can't find os and hard drive
when i try to boot, i get a message that it can't find the os.

if i put an xp cd in and reboot, i get a message to press any key to boot
from cd.

if i DON'T press any key, it will go to install vista screen, when i click
install a fresh windows, i realise that both my hard drive is gone.

any help would be greatly appreicated.

Why are you putting in an XP cd when you are running Vista??

If you DON'T press any key, where is it getting the "install vista
screen" from??

Back at you.
