HELP! Error 15 after install

HELP! URGENT! I recentley downloaded and installed Tahrpup and since my bios did not support usb booting and my CD drive is broken, I did it through EasyBCD. Everything was going well, i followed this: pdf tutorial and like I said everything went flawlessly until the very last steps where I picked the save option I believe, and rebooted. The boot device picker thing popped up, and i had the option of: Puppy Linux Frugal on sda1 option, picked it and got:
"Error 15: File not found
Press any key to continue..." which just got me back to the boot device picker. I don't have the EasyBCD option either when I press F12

Can anybody help me get this back on track? URGENT. Any help deeply appreciated.

Simply put, you don't have a kernel that the boot loader can find.

As a newbie, it will be easiest for you to reinstall it, but be careful of what you are doing, don't be too hasty, read whatever may be shown to you, it is there for a reason.
