So you didn't follow the advice about fdisk /mbr in your previous thread. Had you done that with a M$ version of fdisk, it would have set out the correct code on the MBR for the BIOS and the bootstrap loader to find and to boot Windows.

The

fdisk /mbr

command is entered at a prompt when booting from a Win boot disk.

Now that you have fdisked the entire disk, find a Win boot disk (such as Win98) and use that to boot your machine with CD-ROM support. Then you can install Windoze from your CD, if you so desire. A Win boot disk can be found at http://www.bootdisk.com in a variety of flavors.

I tried to do fdisk /mbr but it didn't do anything. So I fdisked my whole drive. Ill try a bootdisk from there(even tho I have one and it still doesnt find the CDROM drive)
