When starting up I get the HP logo then only a DOS prompt (no drive letter only the flashing curser)

I am absolutley lost about using DOS commands so if anyone has an idea about what to do it will need to be an idiots guide.

BTW problem occured while trying to install Acronis secure zone

Set the BIOS to boot from the CD drive click here and boot with your Windows CD in the drive. IMPORTANT: This may lose your documents etc.
