Drop in a Windows XP cd, see if you can do their startup repair. It's possible that something got corrupted and screwed up the bootloader, not very likely though.

BIOS isn't exactly intelligent. It'll report "no boot disk" even if there is a partition marked as a "boot" partition, but there's no bootloader.
