Error: "Missing Operating System" on Windows 7, HP Pavilion HPE series

Hey guys, I've been getting a "Missing Operating System" error during boot up.

 

I have an HP Pavilion HPE h8-1214 running Windows 7 Home Premium.

 

I've already tried using a Windows 7 disk to repair, but I don't think it recognized my hard drive even though in BIOS I could see it.

 

Right now I'm using an Ubuntu Linux Live CD on the affected machine and it's working just fine. I can even see all my old files!

 

So I'm asking for help to fix my "Missing Operating System" because I'm stumped.

Have you tried running running "System Diasgnostics" on the hard drive yet??? Please turn on your computer and start tapping the "F2" (depending on your computer, it may be a different key) key until the "System Diagnostics" screen comes up. Now teset the hard drive.

 

Report back with details.

 

Please send KUDOs
