Reason: Fixed title
I don't know if super grub will restore your partition without loss of data but as for your problem
but my pc does not read from either the cd or usb drives
This might be a setting in your BIOS. Look in your BIOS settings for somthing that is named like 'boot order'. Change it to boot from CD or USB first. I can't give any more precise details since every BIOS is a little bit different.
Don't know if it's the same for Vista as XP, but with XP you would have to boot up from the installation CD, get to where it asks about repair or install, then enter R. This brings up the Recovery Console. Type in fixmbr, hit Enter, and your problems are over.
