Hello, I don't understand all.. What do you did on your operating system?? 

 

If you have modified your disk it is possible you have erased informations about your hard drive, so your computer don't know what is your operating system.. If you boot your computer taping F11 key, do you have the same message?? 

Other questions: do you have a recovery media for your system? And do you have datas you need to recover?? Because that can be difficult after your modifications.. 
And please tell us the Product Number (P/N) from your PC.
