Invalid partition table

Win 7 computer locked up after failed clone attempt. Screen message indicates no operating system found and suggests restart via ctrl-alt-del. This message repeated after every restart but cannot go beyond this. Hitting f12 at startup also indicates an "invalid partition table". I can insert a DVD but no file opens and I cannot access anything. At this point I just would like to load an operating system and not concerned about losing saved data. Any help is appreciated.

Can you enter the BIOS?

Will the computer start in Safe Mode?

Do you have your Windows installation disc or a recovery disc?
