Well I reset my cmos and now I get a Grub 22 error.  This makes no sense since I don't have linux.  Also I attempted to repair my install and there is no operating system detected.  What happend?

 

edit":

Ok I tested the drive on this computer and all the info is there.

Try moving your hard drive to a different sata port.
