Welcome to Bleeping Computer.


Did you machine only have one hard drive?  Was the drive only for data?


If your machine only had one drive you will need to install an operating system on the drive before the computer is useful.

Adding to BC Advisor's post, you will need the Windows DVD that came with the computer, or, a proper ISO of your Windows.  Now, some here have gone to Linux, however, if you're wanting Windows...
