My laptop doesnt boot at all, getting IO error (File: \Boot\BCD, status: 0xc00000e9). : DELL Inspiron 1090.

When turn on,after showing Dell Logo a black screen appears leading to an IO error (File: \Boot\BCD, status: 0xc00000e9). I tried to change boot priority sequence from setup to reinstall windows. Here it only shows one boot option i.e. hard disk. I have bootable windows 7 CD and want to use it using external DVD ROM. Please help me
