"Missing operating system" massage is coming when i start my system. I think
because , i had given "mark partition as active" option for one hard
dive (E) in disk management when last time i opened. it did not have any data.
i did not know, this will make any problem. Now i am not able to boot windows re installation dvd
also. i can only take BIOS settings.
How i can activate my original partion?
or how i can mark as incative my other partion?
please any one suggest any way for
rectifying this problem ASAP.

If you cannot boot into Windows, you will have to find a disk utility on the internet, like Partition Magic, that can be put on a bootable disk so you can access the partition information.

From the command prompt
select disk 1
select partition 1
Disk 1 and Partition 1 are assumed values in your case they might be different like disk 2 partition 1.
Reboot and try it if it works if it doesn't you may need to update booth path
