Let me understand this:

You booted up the computer, installed McAfee and ran it.

When you restarted your computer, it's doesn't boot, and claims that you have no operating system?

First thing I'd check is your boot sequence in the BIOS. It may be trying to boot from the McAfee CD rather than the hard drive.

Make sure you have no CD in the drive, and no floppy disks in the floppy drive. Then restart the computer.

I booted up the computer by cd, i didn't install McAfee and only ran it in DOS. After scan it, the notice board appeared and asked to continute scan hdd? i choose no, the screen appeared hdd extracted R drive, I pressed CTRL + ALT + DELETE to stop. When I restarted my computer, it's doesn't boot, and claimed that I have no operating system?
And i used partion magic to see the drives, it appeared Unlocated file and have no C,D drives.
I have many documents on it. Please help me to get that documents.

What operating system did you have installed on the disk?

If the disk is appearing as unpartitioned/unformatted, it sounds like maybe the file allocation table is corrupted. 8O

I assume you were running McAfee in DOS because you had a virus? The virus might have done nasty things to your disk. You may need to use a data recovery program to rescue the data.



EDIT: spelling corrected

hi llamaman.
Firstly thank you very much, llamaman.

I used XP OS and McAfee to scan virus in DOS. the disk is not formatted .
llamaman said Although the HDD is unpartitioned, Data can recovery from data recovery program. Is it right?

If Llamaman has Data recovery program then Llamaman can send it to me throught my email or send the link to download and the key of this program.

:cry:

Thank you very much.
Flower.

I'm a little confused as to exactly what you did and why. So let us recap:

You previously were able to boot this computer into Windows XP, booting from the hard drive.

You restarted the computer, but rather than boot to Windows, you booted from a McAfee CD, which started a virus check in a DOS environment.

You cancelled the virus check, and used CNTRL-ALT-DELETE to quit it.

You restarted your computer, but now it doesn't boot into Windows.

______

Is the above correct?

I note that you said the disk wasn't formatted. This cannot be true. If it had Windows installed on it, then you must have formatted it as FAT32 or NTFS when you installed Windows.
The disk is now appearing as not formatted, which suggests that you've either completely wiped the disk, or the file allocation table has been corrupted, so that Partition Magic doesn't "see" it as a formatted partition.

Say Llama_Man... what if he/she were to start up with the "XP" disk and go into Repair Console... repair the boot up and/or the "Allocation" table from there?

I'm trying to work out exactly what the problem is before I offer advice on how to fix it. :!: It all sounds very odd - why boot up the computer under DOS to run a virus check, and then cancel the virus check? :?

go into the bios and disable the pxe boot option. This is to boot to a pxe boot server over a network connection. Change the boot order to hard drive first. See if that helps.
